Pence pledges U.S. commitment to NATO during Estonia trip

Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia
Speaking in Estonia Monday, Vice President Mike Pence reinforced the United States' commitment to a NATO against aggression.


After speaking with leaders of Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, three former Soviet Union republics but now NATO members bordering Russia, Pence commented, "A strong and united NATO is more necessary today than at any point since the collapse of Communism a quarter-century ago."

"No threat looms larger in the Baltic states than the specter of aggression from your unpredictable neighbor to the east," he added. "Under President Donald Trump, the United States of America rejects any attempts to use force, threats, intimidation or malign influence in the Baltic States or against any of our treaty allies."

Some in the three Baltic countries fear they will be the next to fall, in view of Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea and its involvement with Ukrainian separatists, NBC News reported Monday.
