Trump confirms meeting with Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit

By  Jens Stoltenberg  20 minutes ago

In an at times awkward news conference with Trump, Macron appeared exasperated when the United States president said he would pass the question to Macron on whether France should do more to bring French Daesh fighters home.

Macron made the comment in a November 7 interview with The Economist, as he criticised a lack of coordination between North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members over Turkey's recent operation in Syria. Macron on Tuesday accused President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of aligning with ISIS elements to further Turkey's agenda in Syria.

"President Macron is seizing that moment, seeking to be disruptive in his own way, and so we will see how that works", Heather A. Conley, Director of the Europe program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told The New York Times.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders will attempt to make a convincing show of unity on Wednesday when they meet to conclude a summit already overshadowed by bitter rows about the future of the alliance.

The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson met today with Chancellor Merkel, President Macron and President Erdogan to discuss Syria, Libya and Counter-Terrorism.

The substance of the summit is thin, with only one three-hour session planned where leaders are expected to sign off on a set of decisions already taken by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation foreign and defence ministers.

Here's Nunes' Bumbling Defense Of Those Key Giuliani, Parnas Calls
Bondy also told CNN that Parnas would be willing to testify that Nunes met with former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Victor Shokin. In court documents posted in the Times , it was said that " Devin Nunes did not communicate with Parnas in December 2018".

"But if terror organisations whom we fight against are not accepted by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation friends as terror groups, sorry but we will be against all steps to be taken there". We talked about that, ' Trump said.

"This is unprecedented. And it's making North Atlantic Treaty Organisation stronger", Stoltenberg said.

In a first for the alliance, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation also held formal talks among its leaders about China's security implications.

Putting China on NATO's agenda has been a top military priority of the USA, which is concerned about Beijing's ambitions in the Arctic and about Chinese 5G technology, which American officials say presents a security risk.

"We have now recognised that the rise of China has security implications for all allies", Stoltenberg said.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation envoys need formal approval by all 29 members for the plan to improve the defence of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia against any threat from neighbouring Russian Federation.
