US Vice-President to Visit Tbilisi Today

US Vice-President to Visit Tbilisi Today

The vice president said right now Russian Federation is the biggest threat to the region with Moscow seeking to redraw worldwide borders, and put European nations against each other.

Pence's intervention, on a visit to the Estonian capital of Talinnn, came a day after President Vladimir Putin announced he would gut United States missions in the country. The trip comes amid rising tensions between the United States and Russian Federation over a new sanctions bill that easily cleared Congress last week and that the White House says Trump is expected to sign.

Mr Putin suggested he could consider more measures, but said: "I am against it as of today".

Addressing a news conference in Estonia after meeting with leaders of the three Baltic States, including Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, US Vice President Mike Pence said an attack on one of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member is an attack on all of us.

Estonia, where Mr Pence on Sunday raised the possibility of deploying the Patriot anti-missile defence system and which now holds the rotating EU presidency, is the first stop of a European tour also taking him to Georgia and Montenegro as he seeks to reassure allies fearing Russian expansionism.

Pence departed Estonia later on Monday and arrived in Georgia, where he was greeted at the airport by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvrikashvili.

Next year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of freedom for all three of your nations, but for most of this past century, you had to fight to reclaim your independence and your sacred birthright of liberty.

On August 2, he will attend the Adriatic Charter Summit in Montenegro's capital, Podgorica, U.S. officials said.

Donald Trump also made a statement that he is very disappointed in China because they do nothing for us against North Korea nuclear testing if China wants they can easily take care of the problem. The response was to add troops from the U.S and the U.K.in nations such as Estonia and Latvia, unwilling former Soviet republics that retain large Russian-speaking minorities.

President Vladimir Putin said 755 United States diplomats must leave Russian Federation and warned ties with Washington could be gridlocked for a long time, in a move Sunday that followed tough new American sanctions.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg last month demanded more information about Moscow's planned exercise, but also reported that the alliance's Russian Federation deterrent force in Eastern Europe was now fully operational.

Troops from the United States, Britain, Germany, Turkey, Ukraine, Slovenia, and Armenia were taking part.

But he also said he could not see a change in relations "anytime soon".
