“At a moment when Putin has shattered peace in Europe and attacked the very, very tenets of rule-based order.
“The United States and are allies are going to step up.” The US will also send more air defence equipment to Italy and Germany, Biden pledged.
Biden has already sent an extra 20,000 troops to Europe with the total now being 100,000.
Speaking of the news whilst addressing NATO Secretary-Genera Jen Stoltenberg, President Biden said, “We’re sending an unmistakable message in my view, and I think yours as well.
“NATO is strong, united and the steps we’re taking during this summit will kind of further augment our collective strengths.
“To that end, today I’m announcing the United States will enhance our force posture in Europe and respond to the changing security environment as well as strengthening our collective security.”
