US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that NATO’s efforts in Eastern Europe were instrumental in fending off Russia’s “destabilizing behavior.”

Speaking at a joint press conference alongside his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda upon arriving in Warsaw, Trump said that the alliance between NATO and Poland “remains critical to deter conflict and ensuring that war between great powers never again ravages Europe.”

On Russia’s alleged interference in the 2016 US election, which Moscow vehemently denies, Trump said that “it could have very well been Russia but it could well have been other countries.”

Addressing the North Korean missile crisis in the wake of Pyongyang’s latest missile test, the US President said that North Korea “is behaving in a very dangerous manner and something must be done about it.”

The North Korean missile crisis is expected to dominate the agenda of the 2017 G20 Hamburg summit due on Friday, which Trump is set to attend.
