BBC Newsnight: NATO summit

11 July 2018

Sophia Besch, a research fellow at the CER spoke to Newsnight (from 31:57 mins) from the NATO summit.

“The big risk is that this sows division among European allies and that’s what Germany is worried about -  that’s what we should all be worried about. If NATO becomes the kind of protection racket that Trump seems to think it is, with European allies vying for his attention and vying for American support, then that really betrays all the ideals that the alliance as a collective security alliance stands for and I think that’s the biggest risk.
