US Gets No Commitment From Allies to Thwart Iran Threat

No sign of progress at NATO in U.S.-Turkey dispute over Russian defenses

No sign of progress at NATO in U.S.-Turkey dispute over Russian defenses

The attacks and escalating tensions have raised worries of an impending conflict between the USA and Iran.

The treaty bans land-based missiles with a range between 500 km and 5,500 km.

The United States says it will also focus on developing conventional missiles that serve as a deterrent to both Russian Federation and China, which is not a signatory to the INF treaty and has stated its intention to push into new technologies including new cruise missiles. Iran rejected the accusations and implied the incidents were false flag operations meant to escalate tensions and justify the American military build-up in the Middle East.

Moscow and Washington have accused each other of violating the agreement in recent years amid increasing tensions.

The Russian State Duma, the lower chamber of parliament, passed the bill submitted by Russian President Vladimir Putin on June 18. "We will also look further at our air and missile defenses and conventional capabilities", he said.

NATO's response will be "defensive, measured and coordinated", Stoltenberg said ahead of the meeting.

Russian Federation seized Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in March 2014 and backs separatists whose war against Kyiv's forces has killed some 13,000 people in eastern Ukraine since April of that year.

Asked earlier Wednesday if the military alliance might use its nascent missile defense shield to counter the new Russian missiles, Stoltenberg said he wouldn't divulge "exactly what we will do because we are still focused on how we can get Russia back into compliance".

The secretary-general said that space "is part of our daily lives and while it can be used for peaceful purposes, it can also be used for aggression".

Another key subject at the meeting was Afghanistan. "We will need to respond".

The United States has been seeking to break down the deal.

Acting Defense Secretary Mark Esper urged European allies on Thursday to publicly condemn Iran's actions and join a new USA -proposed maritime security effort to protect the Strait of Hormuz, after a series of attacks on tankers and the shoot down of a American drone in that strategic waterway.

"However, we have seen no sign that Russian Federation is willing to do so". Following the downing of the drone, President Trump said that he made the decision to carry out airstrikes against multiple Iranian targets before pulling back at the last minute after being told that they would kill 150 Iranians, saying such a reaction would not be "proportionate". "This is Iran certainly versus the region, and arguably the broader global environment". Turkey could face sanctions under United States law and risks losing its partnership and delivery of F-35 fighter jets.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg speaks during a news conference after a NATO Defence Ministers meeting in Brussels, Belgium June 26, 2019.

"NATO allies are delivering" to meet a target of at least 2% of their GDP on defence spending, he said, adding that "fair burden sharing" was key to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and that the USA understood that. "We do not want a new arms race". "So we now have five consecutive years of growth in defense spending".

Stoltenberg unveiled figures showing a real-terms increase of 3.9 percent in 2018 across Europe and Canada, which has added more than $100 billion to NATO's capabilities.
