US to review Europe troop presence to reassure allies

US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel speaks during a news conference at the end of a NATO meeting in Brussels, on June 4, 2014The United States will review its troop presence in Europe as it seeks to reassure allies they will not be left unprotected after Russia’s intervention in Ukraine, US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday. President Barack Obama’s $1 billion US ‘reassurance plan’ for eastern Europe announced Tuesday is a key part of such efforts and will involve Washington “reviewing the US force presence in Europe,” Hagel said. “In light of the new regional security environment, it would be irresponsible for us not to,” he added, in an apparent reference to Ukraine. This is a sensitive issue at the heart of the NATO-Russia treaty that formalised the end of the Cold War and set the parameters for security in Europe with Moscow.
