Vice president: U.S. stands beside Baltic states forever

30 Jul 2017- 18:02:00

He made clear that the measure was in response to new sanctions approved by the U.S. Congress and sent to U.S. President Donald Trump to be signed into law. "But the president and our Congress are unified in our message: a better relationship and the lifting of sanctions will require Russian Federation to reverse the actions that caused the sanctions to be imposed in the first place".

On Sunday, while on his trip to Eastern Europe, Vice President Mike Pence caught up with Fox News during a stop in Tallinn, Estonia, and he tried to reassure our North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies that we are still very much aligned.

The announcement Sunday also came hours after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence landed in Estonia, which borders Russian Federation, for talks with the country that holds the rotating European Union presidency. He also planted an English oak before departing with his wife Karen on Air Force Two to Tbilisi, Georgia, on the next leg of a European tour that also takes him to Montenegro.

After his visit to Estonia, Mr Pence confirmed he had held lengthy discussions with Mr Ratas about deploying more missiles, telling reporters: "We spoke about it today, but we didn't talk about a date or time". "China is opposed to North Korea's launch activities in violation of UN Security Council resolutions and against the will of the global community", Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said.

Analyst Andres Kasekamp added on the same channel that "the timing, before Russia's Zapad exercises (in September in Belarus, near the Lithuanian border) shows that the U.S. wants to say: 'We are watching what's happening here very closely and you can be certain of our support'".

President Donald Trump campaigned heavily on the message of "America first", which has influenced his politics after moving into the Oval Office.

"Recent diplomatic action taken by Moscow will not deter the commitment of the United States of America to our security, the security of our allies". As former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul pointed out on NBC's Today show, it will also hurt Russia in other ways, such as applications for visas to travel to the US.

US Vice President Mike Pence launched into a wide-ranging tirade against Russian Federation on Monday, signaling no let-up in an increasingly bitter row between Moscow and Washington over sanctions.

Although Pence said the United States sought better relations with Russian Federation, he restated that Article 5 of NATO's charter, which guarantees mutual defense, will be honored.

Mr Pence spoke a day after Mr Putin told the United States it must cut staff at its embassy in Moscow and other facilities in Russian Federation by 755 by September 1, a retaliatory move for sanctions legislation passed by Congress last week and earlier diplomatic expulsions by the US.
