Sweden Seeks Trump Assurances on 'Commitment' to NATO

•, by Jason Ditz

Swedish Defense Minister Peter Hultqvist is the latest in a series of European officials stepping up to pressure President-elect Donald Trump on his commitment to NATO, saying that "through his own actions" Trump had created question marks about where his loyalties lie.

Hultqvist said the Swedish government would get into contact with Trump's transition team soon to seek clarificaition on his policy toward NATO, as well as where he stands on a relationship with Russia and in Eastern Europe.

This is more of the same, but is noteworthy because Sweden isn't even a NATO member nation in the first place, and seems to be getting in on the European pressure to see the US continuing to throw troops and weaponry at Eastern Europe irrespective of being part of the NATO "alliance" which provides the basis for that.
