NATO Will Reschedule Brussels Meeting Allowing Secretary Tillerson To Attend…

Previously we discussed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson having a conflict in schedules with a Brussels NATO meeting.  Both Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi and Chinese President Xi Jinping are visiting President Trump and Secretary Tillerson in the first week of April.  The Brussels NATO meeting was scheduled for April 5th and 6th.

The U.S. leftist media tried to make a controversy over the scheduling conflict.  However, now NATO has agreed to change their meeting date.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of NATO says he is certain a semiannual meeting of the alliance’s foreign ministers can be rescheduled so Secretary of State Rex Tillerson can attend.

U.S. officials said this week that Tillerson was planning to skip next month’s meeting in Brussels. Shortly after, he plans to visit Moscow. The decisions led some European officials to worry about the Trump administration’s commitment to the alliance.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg told The Associated Press in an interview that he met with Tillerson Wednesday and they agreed to have their staffs work out an alternative schedule. Stoltenberg said he was “absolutely certain” they could find a date that works for everyone.

Stoltenberg was speaking on the sidelines of a meeting in Washington of the 68-nation coalition fighting the Islamic State group.  (link)

    I’d swear there’ a subliminal message in the announcement made by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.

    I keep hearing, “NATO needs the US, NATO needs the US…” in the back of my mind.

      It speaks to his character and level of self confidence to pick a shining star. The former president Obama would never pick someone of Tillerson’s caliber because he needed to be the smartest guy in the room. I really like his cabinet.

    This is the absolute BEST win! This made me laugh out loud! Reuters criticizes Rex’s priorities but what happens? “The world” begins to revolve around Rex, around Trump and around the NATION we call the USofA. Just as things should be.

    There have been some big wins, but THIS is an absolutely remarkable win because of what it means and what it signals.

    There is NO NATO without the USA.

    TREX and our President should tell NATO that until all 28 members pay their 2% plus payments from previous years where they failed to pay the correct percentage, the US will not be attending any meetings.

      Actually I think we should attend meetings, on our schedule. We simply should not pay any more, even begin to pull out troops, unless they pony up.

      It will be epic.

      I wonder if PDJT will take Putin to Mar A Lago?
      Hope so.
      Melania speaks Russian, I think…and I am sure that Putin would enjoy meeting her.

    I think what some of these NATO leaders fear most is one thing they’ve heard about President Trump: He loves to review financial statements. Heck, some say he reviews them for fun.

    They know that a review of their books will uncover too much spent on palatial HQ’s and offices around the world, and an overpaid and bloated civilian bureaucracy. They don’t even want to talk about the waste. It’s truth telling time.

    I listen to NPR in the car, just to see what they’re saying. Yesterday morning the host had a NATO official on and it was cringe-inducing listening to him trying to bait the NATO guy into saying Tillerson’s scheduling conflict was really a message about how the Trump administration favors Russia. The NATO guy kept saying, “This happens sometimes, and I’m sure we can work out an alternative date.”. He seemed uncomfortable when the host just wouldn’t accept that answer.
