US Vice President Mike Pence, during his speech at the meeting of the North Atlantic Council, stated that he considers Russia, Iran and terrorism as the major global threats.

The world today has become more dangerous than ever since the collapse of the USSR, taking into account the actions of Russia, Iran and terrorists, Pence said.

“From the Russian attempts to redraw international borders by force, to Iran destabilizing the Middle East, and to the global threat of terrorism, which affects people everywhere. It seems that the world has become much more dangerous today than ever since the fall of communism, about a quarter of a century ago,”– he said at a meeting of vice-president.

Pence, as part of this statement, mentioned the fact that NATO has continued to evolve, and expressed US willingness to defend allies in the alliance under collective defense, according to which an attack on one member is considered an attack on the alliance.

The ex-governor of Indiana is known as a Republican with ultra-conservative views.
