Claudia Major from the German Institute for International and Security Affairs says:
"NATO is only as strong as its members make it. Open conflict undermines its collective defense commitment."



DW-Correspondent Christian F. Trippe says: "US President Trump could sell out the alliance to Putin. This concrete fear among allies shows that NATO is eroding."



Tyson Barker from the Aspen Institute Germany says:
"For too long, NATO has been so preoccupied with threats from the East and South, that it has overlooked threats coming from within."
