One day after John McCain made a questionable diplomatic outburst when as part of a US diplomatic tour meant to reassure Europe, and NATO, of Trump’s support, the Senator told participants at a Security Conference in Munich that the Trump administration is in “disarray”, on Saturday morning Vice President Mike Pence did his best to return to conventional foreign policy after he vowed that the United States will “hold Russia accountable.” In an address to the Munich Security Conference, Pence assured European allies that the U.S. “strongly supports” NATO and will be “unwavering” in its commitment to trans-Atlantic institutions like NATO.
Pence also said the U.S. would demand that Russia honor a 2015 peace deal agreed upon in Minsk, Belarus, to end violence in eastern Ukraine between government forces and Russia-backed separatists.
“Know this: The United States will continue to hold Russia accountable, even as we search for new common ground which as you know President Trump believes can be found,” Pence said.
