According to The National Interest, American analyst David Pine suggested that the US authorities may be ready to exclude the Baltic states from NATO for a strategic deal with Russia.
Pine is confident that the United States at all times pursues exclusively its own national interests. And the Baltic republics are not included in this list.
“ Washington … is ready to exclude Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia from the alliance … .
He recalled that in the security agreement proposed by Russia there is a clause that the States will undertake & nbsp; themselves to prevent further NATO expansion to the & nbsp; east and & nbsp; refuse to & nbsp; join the states of the former USSR.
& quot; This can be interpreted as the exception of Estonia, Latvia and & nbsp; Lithuania & quot;, & nbsp; – explained Pine.
