Canada To Lead NATO Training Mission In Iraq

In a press release, Trudeau's office said Canadian troops "will be deployed to Baghdad and the vicinity" starting in the autumn of 2018 and running for a year.

Asked about Canada's failure to achieve the 2% GDP defence investment spending as set out in NATO's aims at the 2014 Wales summit, Trudeau said that the aim was fairly "primitive" and that current modernisation and extension efforts of the Canadian military are sufficient.

"Ottawa should, and ought to, remain engaged in the security of the Baltic states as long as the threat remains and as long as the alliance remains ultimately unified in its determination to provide collective security for all its members". Germany leads a similar force in Lithuania, Britain leads one in Estonia and the USA leads in Poland. "We are proud to take a leadership role in Iraq, and work with our allies and the government of Iraq, to help this region of the Middle East transition to long-lasting peace and stability", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was quoted as saying.

"We certainly hope that Russian Federation will choose to become a more positive actor in world affairs than it has chosen to be in the past".

It is understood that more than 20 supporters were identified by the authorities and they lost their FAN-IDs and were sent home. He also said there have been several cases of women reporters being grabbed or kissed while on air.

Trudeau also met in Riga Tuesday with Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis.

Trump has threatened to pull out of the alliance entirely if other member nations don't pony up.

On his way to the summit, Trump fired off another Twitter volley: "Many countries in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which we are expected to defend, are not only short of their current commitment of two per cent (which is low), but are also delinquent for many years in payments that have not been made".

If confirmed, his relatively modest means would rank Kavanaugh in the lower tier in personal finances among members of court. Replacing Justice Kennedy's swing vote with a far-right jurist like Judge Kavanaugh could change the rules in America.

"The Trump-Putin summit could potentially aggravate US allies who want to isolate Putin", said Jayson Derow, a research analyst at the NATO Association of Canada.

"I think it's an important metric, amongst many others, to gauge how countries are doing in terms of contributors to NATO", Trudeau said of the two-per-cent benchmark. Members don't pay dues, although they do contribute to common military and civilian programs - and Washington pays nearly one-quarter of those costs.

Concerns about US disengagement have also deepened given that Trump is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin just days after the summit.

U.S. President Donald Trump and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg have latched onto the target as an important indicator of how much individual members are contributing to the alliance.
