Президент Украины Петр Порошенко в рамках «общей встречи» с лидерами западных стран, которая состоялась сегодня, 4 сентября, в Уэльсе в рамках саммита НАТО, проинформировал «партнеров» о ходе переговоров, которые состоялись накануне с президентом Российской Федерации Владимиром Путиным относительно мирного урегулирования ситуации на Донбассе. Об этом Порошенко заявил журналистам после встречи, передает корреспондент ИА REGNUM.
Порошенко отметил, что по предварительно информации завтра, 5 сентября, в 14:00, в Минске должно состояться заседание трехсторонней контактной группы (Украина-Россия-ОБСЕ). «Запланировано подписание документа, предусматривающий этапность введения мирного плана Украины… Чрезвычайно важно, что ключевым элементом этого плана является прекращение огня. Если встреча состоится и подписание плана будет подтверждено, мы надеемся, что имплементация мирного плана будет начата прямо завтра», — подчеркнул президент Украины.
Напомним, что Порошенко начал свое участие в саммите НАТО с общей встречи с премьер-министром Великобритании Дэвидом Кэмероном, президентом США Бараком Обамой, канцлером Германии Ангелой Меркель, премьер-министром Италии Матео Ренци и президентом Франции Франсуа Олландом.

U.S. Citizen Not Allowed To Leave Azerbaijan

A U.S. citizen of Azerbaijani origin, Said Nuri, has been barred from leaving Azerbaijan.
Nuri told RFE/RL that officials at Baku international airport did not allow him to leave for Ukraine on September 4, citing an undisclosed ruling by the National Security Ministry and prosecutor-general's office.
According to Nuri, Azerbaijani officials said to him that he is also a citizen of Azerbaijan and therefore the U.S. Embassy has no right to interfere in the situation.
Nuri was the deputy chief of the pro-opposition Yeni Fikir (New Opinion) youth group.
He left Azerbaijan several years ago after an investigation into treason was launched against his organization.
Nuri said it's his fourth trip to Azerbaijan since he became a U.S. citizen in 2012.
For each trip he has obtained a visa as he used his U.S. passport to enter the country.

РБК 04.09.2014, Москва 18:40:33 Украинские силовики заявили, что им удалось отразить наступление ополченцев на Мариуполь. Об этом сообщил советник министра обороны Украины Александр Данилюк.
«Подразделения вооруженных сил Украины отразили наступление врага на Мариуполь и уничтожили несколько единиц бронетехники противника», — написал он на своей странице в «фейсбук». Данилюк добавил, что обстрел украинских позиций продолжается.
По словам заместителя председателя Донецкой ОГА Константина Батозского, речь идет о четырех танках ополченцев. «Силами пограничных войск и спецбатальона «Азов» отбита разведка боем, которую предпринял враг со стороны Новоазовска. Уничтожены 4 танка врага», — пояснил он.
По его словам, в настоящий момент обстановка в Мариуполе спокойная.
Боевые действия на востоке Украины продолжаются с середины апреля, когда Александр Турчинов, бывший тогда врио президента Украины, объявил о начале спецоперации. Согласно последним оценкам ООН, в зоне конфликта погибло 2 тыс. 593 человека.
Ранее сегодня сообщалось, что нынешний глава Украины Петр Порошенко объявит о прекращении огня в зоне конфликта на востоке страны в пятницу, 5 сентября. Лидеры самопровозглашенных Донецкой и Луганской народных республик готовы отдать приказ о прекращении боевых действий в то же время.

Украинские военнослужащие под Мариуполем успешно отразили разведку боем, о которойраньше сообщил глава Донецкой облгосадминистрации Сергей Тарута, и которую местные жители ошибочно приняли за полноценное вторжение. Об этом на своей страничке в "Фейсбуке"написал заместитель губернатора области Константин Батозский.
- Силами пограничных войск и спецбатальона "Азов" отбита разведка боем, которую предпринял враг со стороны Новоазовска. Уничтожены 4 танка врага (именно столько Тарута назвал. - Авт.), - написал он.  
Батозский добавил, что по состоянию на 15.48 ситуация стабилизировалась. По его словам, в городе по-прежнему работают Сергей Тарута и мэр Мариуполя Юрий Хотлубей.
- Паникеров, истеричек, читателей гороскопов и прочих просим великодушно успокоиться, - резюмировал заместитель главы облгосадминистрации.
В ТОЖЕ ВРЕМЯ
Соцсети: "В Мариуполе опять взрывы, дрожат окна!"
После утренних сообщений на мариупольской страничке в соцсети "ВКонтакте" о том, что на город атакуют и последующих заявлений от украинских военных о том, что атака на город была отбита, в соцсетях возобновились сообщения о взрывах и стрельбе.
"На Восточном слышно взрывы, стоит дым. На Ленинградском окна чуть не повылетали. Живу на Нептуне, слышал выстрелы и канонаду", - пишут горожане.
По словам людей, звуки взрывы слышны на протяжении 30 секунд, затем они стихают, а потом все повторяется. Поступают сообщения о сильных отголосках взрывов, трясутся окна на верхних этажах многоэтажек.
"Грады, что ли, были? Стекла дрожали, а мы на пятом этаже", - пишет мариупольчанка Алина Прокопчук.
Люди передают, что опять начались проблемы с сотовой связью - не работает "Киевстар". По последним сообщениям, украинская армия начала отступать от города, однако, эта информация пока не подтверждается.
Напомним, боевые действия под Мариуполем начались сегодня утром. По словам губернатора Донецкой области Сергея Таруты, в селе Широкино шла разведка боем.
В час дня 4 сентября жители Мариуполя начали сообщать о взрывах и перестрелках в городе, в основном на Левом берегу. По городу разлетелась страшная новость – начался штурм. Местные жители сообщили, что также слышен гул авиационных двигателей. Чья это авиация - не понятно.
"КП в Украине" дозвонилась заместителю батальона "Азов" Игорю Мосийчуку. Факт массированной атаки он подтвердил. В штабе обороны Мариуполя уточнили, что бой идет не в самом городе, а рядом с ним. Несколько танков выдвинулись со стороны Новоазовска, также боевые действия развернулись в Безыменном. В штабе отметили, что противник не представляет опасности.
Бой развернулся под Мариуполем - село Широкино. 
Позже жители Мариуполя сообщили, что два российских танка подбиты. По имеющейся информации, это те же танки, которые стояли в Новоазовске.
В Государственной пограничной службе отпровергают информацию замкомбата "Азова" Игоря Мосийчука о том, что Мариуполь был атакован с моря. Напомним, он сообщил, что с Азовского моря к порту прибыли несколько ракетных катеров с закрашенными эмблемами, они ведут ракетный обстрел территории.
Местные же жители при этом решили, что город атакуют с воздуха. В сосетях писали, что слышали гул ракетных двигателей, а за этим – взрывы.
ГЕОГРАФИЯ БОЕВ
Данные разрозненные. 
Антикризисный медиа-центр: в половину двенадцатого около украинская разведка сообщила, что со стороны Коминтерново (Новоазовский район) выдвинулось 10 танков (на танках видны надписи: "На Киев", "На Львов", 4 БМП-1, 2 БТР, 5 "КамАЗов" с военной техникой. С другой стороны — через Безименное в сторону Мариуполя выдвинулось 10 танков и самоходная техника.
Тарута: 4 танка и около 40 десантников проводят разведку боем, выехали из Безыменного и находятся между селом Широкино и селом Бердянское
Hubs: со ссылкой на донецкого пограничника сообщил, что военная техника противника в 15 -20 км от Мариуполя. Наступление, по его словам, происходит со стороны поселка  Розы Люксембург и Новоазовска. 
*красным отмечен Мариуполь, фиолетовым - населенные пункты из которых, по данным военных, выдвинулась техника противника, синим - села, где идут бои.

Как сообщает2 УНН со ссылкой на пресс-центр АТО, российские военные обстреливали силы АТО под Мариуполем с территории пансионата. «Около двух часов назад в районе населенного пункта Безымянный российская артиллерия открыла огонь по позициям Вооруженных сил Украины. По данным разведки, неподалеку от орудийных расчетов расположились съемочные группы российских телеканалов. Их целью было снять очередной провокационный материал», — сообщили в пресс-центре АТО.
Ранее в четверг источник «Интерфакса» в правительстве самопровозглашенной Донецкой народной республики (ДНР), сообщил, что ополченцы начали активную фазу операции с целью взять под контроль Мариуполь. «Начались активные действия на южном направлении.

Операция проводится войсковыми методами», — сказал источник. «Интерфакс» не располагает подтверждением этой информации из других источников. В то же время «Украинская правда» сообщала, что ситуация в Мариуполе спокойная, силам АТО поступает подкрепление.

Спикер информационно-аналитического центра Совета национальной безопасности и обороны(СНБО) Украины Андрей Лысенко подтвердил «РИА Новости», что ополченцы движутся на Мариуполь, однако заявил, что «массового наступления не наблюдается». «Отступления(со стороны украинских военных в Мариуполе) нет. Да, действительно есть информация о якобы движении со стороны террористов», — сказал Лысенко. Вместе с тем он заявил, что «какого-то массового наступления не наблюдается».

Ukraine Leader Says He Seeks Cease-Fire to Begin on Friday

1 Share
NEWPORT, Wales — With Ukraine the primary focus of the NATO summit meeting here Thursday, the Ukrainian president, Petro O. Poroshenko, said he would seek to establish “a bilateral cease-fire” on Friday between Ukraine’s armed forces and pro-Russian separatists that would lay the foundation for a “stage-by-stage peace plan” for his country.
Mr. Poroshenko met in the morning with leaders of the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Italy and said any cease-fire would be conditional on a planned meeting going ahead in Minsk on Friday of envoys from Ukraine, Russia and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. If the meeting takes place, he said, he will “call on the general staff to set up a bilateral cease-fire, and we hope that the implementation of the peace plan will begin tomorrow.”
Other cease-fire efforts have foundered, and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia has said the negotiations are not his problem, because Russia is “not a party” to the conflict. Mr. Putin has repeated that claim lately in the face of accusations from President Obama and NATO leaders that regular Russian troops are fighting in support of the separatists inside Ukraine.
A rebel leader told the Russian news agency Interfax that “if there is a real cease-fire on their part, then maybe we will also cease fire.” Andrei Purgin, a leader of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, said, “We will see how they observe their cease-fire.”
The summit is taking place at a moment of rising challenges to NATO practically across the globe, a point Britain’s prime minister, David Cameron, the summit host, made in his opening remarks on Thursday. While declaring flatly that “Russian troops are illegally in Ukraine,” he raised other new threats, like an “extremist Islamist threat that has arisen in Iraq and Syria” that will require the alliance to “reinvigorate and refocus.”
In a joint op-ed article on Thursday in The Times of London, Mr. Obama and Mr. Cameron called on NATO to reject “isolationist” impulses and confront the rising terrorist threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, known as ISIS, saying the United States and Britain “will not be cowed by barbaric killers” or “weaken in the face of their threats.”
Mr. Cameron said he would urge alliance partners to follow the American and British refusal not to pay ransoms to terrorist groups, and officials said Britain would now supply ammunition to the Kurds in Iraq who are fighting ISIS. Mr. Obama and Mr. Cameron are trying to secure support for a wider international coalition against the militant group, but the British have so far chosen not to bomb ISIS positions, as the Americans are doing.
“The international community as a whole has an obligation to stop the Islamic State from advancing further,” Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the NATO secretary general, said at a news conference on Thursday, using the name ISIS itself goes by. He noted that there had been no request from Iraq for NATO assistance in confronting the group.
But how to deal with Russia and its challenge to the post-Cold War European order is the central issue for NATO, with its focus on European security. Through some substantive measures and some symbolic ones, the alliance wants to calm members like the Baltic states and Poland and also make clear to Moscow that the principle of collective defense remains sacrosanct and is credible.
The principal measure NATO is expected to support is the establishment of an upgraded rapid reaction force of some 4,000 troops able to deploy to prepositioned bases and equipment in the east within 48 hours.
Without using the word “permanent,” which would violate an agreement with Moscow, Mr. Obama and Mr. Cameron called for keeping a “persistent” NATO defensive presence in Eastern Europe to show Russia that the alliance is serious about the defense of all of its members, and expressed support for the rapid-response force including land, air, maritime and special forces “that could deploy anywhere in the world at very short notice.”
In written comments made to the morning meeting on Ukraine, Prime Minister Matteo Renzi of Italy said, “We have to be united in condemning Russia’s behavior.” He noted that the European Union is moving to enlarge sanctions on Russia in sectors like “finance, defense and sensitive technologies and dual use goods.”
While NATO can help a political solution in Ukraine by “lending concrete support to Kiev,” he said, “at the same time we have to avoid NATO being perceived as a further confrontational factor.”
Mr. Renzi urged support for a lasting cease-fire and urged Mr. Poroshenko to continue efforts “to launch an effective national reconciliation process,” including constitutional reform to protect minorities, a major theme as well of the German chancellor, Angela Merkel.
NATO leaders are also discussing winding down the alliance’s combat mission in Afghanistan at the end of the year and shifting it to a training and assistance mission, although details of the transition cannot be finalized until Afghans resolve a disputed presidential election.

У Мариуполя горят бронемашины и гремят взрывы, идет бой // НТВ.Ru

Бой начали украинские силовики, которые находятся в Мариуполе на осадном положении. Сегодня днем ополченцы предложили им провести переговоры. Требований было два — сдаться самим и сложить оружие. Но все попытки переговоров были тщетны. Военные
попытались прорвать оборону ополченцев
 с восточной части города. Ополченцы смогли отстоять свои блокпосты.


Сейчас бой продолжается. Со стороны Новоазовска в Мариуполь идет колонна из нескольких десятков танков, на самих подступах к городу также горят бронемашины. Люди 
спешно покидают Мариуполь
.


Что же касается Донецка, то говорить о том, что обстановка в нем нормализуется пока преждевременно. Ополченцам удалось выбить бойцов Нацгвардии подальше от города, и теперь они не утюжат его из артиллерии. Но шум канонады все еще доносится с северной части города. Это бойцы Нацгвардии бомбят жилые дома и объекты инфраструктуры, передает

Cameron and Obama unite against Isis at Nato summit: Politics live blog

Rolling coverage of all the developments from the Nato summit in Newport, including David Camerons Today interview
The Radio 5 Live interview is now over. It was Camerons fifth this morning (after ITV, BBC Breakfast, Sky News, and Today) and his last.
Ill post a summary of the highlights shortly.
Q: What will stop Putin?
Cameron says we need to show that Russia needs the west more than the west needs Russia.
Q: At the end of the cold war we thought threats were over. Was it a mistake to cut the defence budget?
Cameron says he never thought threats had gone away.
Q: What can be done to bring to justice the Briton seen in the James Foley/Steven Sotloff videos?
Cameron says the people who do this should know, one way or another, they will face justice. He is sure that is true of this individual too.
Cameron is on Radio 5 Live now.
Some of what he says duplicates what he said on Today, and so I will leave out those answers. Ill try to focus just on the new material.
The Daily Mails political editor, James Chapman, thinks David Cameron is bluffing when he says he would not resign if Scotland voted yes.
Cameron says again 'emphatically' he would not resign if Scotland votes to leave UK. Not sure I believe that #IndyRef
Q: Turning to Scotland, what has gone wrong with the Better Together campaign?
Cameron says he does not think it has been negative of complacent. As prime minister he is saying the rest of the UK wants Scotland to stay. He is not staying Scotland cannot be independent; Scotland, of course, can be independent. But it is better off as part of the UK.
Q: Why are Britons going abroad?
Cameron says he asks that question all the time. A poisonous world view has arisen. It is not representative if Islam. Its a view that pops up all over the world wherever there is a broken state. It is an extremist, poisonous, medievalist world view, he says.
Q: Your plans for a crackdown on British jihadists are virtually unworkable.
Cameron says he does not accept that.
Q: Obama says he does not have a strategy.
Cameron says he does not accept the idea there is not a strategy. Look at the many initiatives taken recently.
Q: Would you sanction air strikes?
Cameron says he wont rule anything out.
Sarah Montague is interviewing David Cameron.
Q: A Briton is being held hostage in Syria. What can you do to help?
And Cameron has been tweeting about the sunrise.
RT @NATOWales: Stunning #sunrise over Celtic Manor in Newport ahead of the start of#NATOSummitUK this morning. http://t.co/uQfXJBueGs
Heres my colleague Patrick Wintours Twitter summary of what David Cameron has already been saying in his morning interviews.
Cameron am broadcasts. Talks of arming and training Kurds. IS direct threat to UK. Assad part of the problem, not part of the solution.
David Cameron is in Newport in South Wales this morning, where he will be hosting a two-day Nato summit. With Islamic State (Isis, according to the Guardians house style, but often referred to as Isil by others) now controlling a territory larger in size than the UK in Syria and Iraq, and Russia launching a quasi-invasion of Ukraine, this is one of the most important Nato summits in recent years.
As Patrick Wintour reports in the Guardian, Cameron and President Obama want to use the summit to build an anti-Isis alliance.
Barack Obama and David Cameron have vowed to use the Nato summit starting in Wales on Thursday to engineer a resilient military and political coalition, including key countries in the Middle East, capable of squeezing out and destroying Islamic State (Isis) in northern Iraq.
British officials also said the Britishprime minister was examining every option to protect the British hostage threatened by the jihadist group on Tuesday, in light of its murder of the American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley in the past month.
Those who want to adopt an isolationist approach misunderstand the nature of security in the 21st century. Developments in other parts of the world, particularly in Iraq and Syria, threaten our security at home.
And Nato is not just an alliance of friends who come to the aid of each other in times of need. It is also an alliance based on national self-interest. Whether it is regional aggression going unchecked or the prospect that foreign fighters could return from Iraq and Syria to pose a threat in our countries, the problems we face today threaten the security of British and American people, and the wider world. Our nations have always believed that we are more prosperous and secure when the world is more prosperous and secure. So we have a real stake in making sure they grow up in a world where schoolgirls are not kidnapped, women are not raped in conflict and families arent slaughtered because of their faith or political beliefs. That is why we have decimated core al-Qaeda and supported the Afghan people. And it is why we will not waver in our determination to confront Isil. If terrorists think we will weaken in the face of their threats they could not be more wrong. Countries like Britain and America will not be cowed by barbaric killers. We will be more forthright in the defence of our values, not least because a world of greater freedom is a fundamental part of how we keep our people safe.

Obama, Cameron: Countries Will Not be Intimidated by Militants

1 Share
President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron say their countries will not be intimidated by "barbaric killers." Their comments come after Islamic State militants killed two American journalists. The leaders co-authored an opinion piece in the Times of London newspaper as NATO officials take part in a summit in Britain. Obama has called for international action to counter Islamic State militants who have taken control of large areas in eastern Syria and northern and western Iraq.  The group has released videos showing the beheading of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, saying their killings were retaliation for U.S. airstrikes in Iraq targeting the Islamic State. Obama plans to host a U.N. Security Council session later this month to address the threat posed by foreign fighters like those who have traveled to join terrorist groups in Iraq and Syria. U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Wednesday that more than 100 U.S. citizens are fighting with the militants in Iraq and Syria, and that the United States and its coalition partners have to do everything possible to stop the Islamic State group now. Hagel said CNN television that the beheadings of Sotloff and Foley made him sick to his stomach. The president said Wednesday that those who killed the journalists have failed in whatever they are trying to achieve because the world is "repulsed by their barbarism." U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said the United States will relentlessly follow the killers of the two Americans "to the gates of hell." The militant speaking in the Sotloff video threatened the life of British hostage David Cawthorne Haines, who has been described as a security officer for aid agencies.

NATO Chief Dismisses Putin's Ukraine Plan

1 Share
NATO’s secretary-general has dismissed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s seven-step plan to end the fighting in eastern Ukraine, as alliance leaders gathered in Britain for their first summit in two years.    Anders Fogh Rasmussen derided Putin’s approach as a “so-called peace plan.”  He said, what counts is what is happening on the ground in eastern Ukraine, where the West says Russian troops are fighting with separatists against the Ukrainian military, a charge Russia denies.   “We continue to call on Russia to pull back its troops from Ukrainian borders, stop the flow of weapons and fighters into Ukraine, stop the support for armed militants in Ukraine and engage in a constructive political process," he said.  "That would be a genuine effort to facilitate a political solution.   Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko will meet with NATO leaders Thursday, and Rasmussen said the alliance will make a joint declaration on the crisis, and agree on what he called “concrete steps” to enhance their cooperation with Ukraine.   NATO is also planning to create a rapid reaction force to enhance its military presence in member states close to Russia, and to deter, and if necessary respond to, any Russian military moves in those areas.    The secretary-general said the NATO leaders will also discuss the rise of the Islamic State militant group in Iraq and Syria, but for now he said it is up to individual members what to do about it.  He said NATO would seriously consider any request from the Iraqi government to resume a training mission that ended two years ago, but no request has been received.  Rasmussen welcomed unilateral action by several allies, including the U.S. bombing of Islamic State forces and humanitarian aid drops by several countries.   Afghanistan The NATO leaders will also confer about Afghanistan, where their combat mission will end in December and they hope to launch an advisory and training mission next year.  They are waiting for the results of the disputed Afghan presidential election to get the agreement signed.   Rasmussen described this as a “crucial summit at a crucial time,” and one of the most important in the alliance’s history.   But experts say NATO finds itself frustratingly limited in what it can do to address what Rasmussen calls the “dramatically changed security environment.”  The alliance does not want to get into a major war, and many member countries face economic constraints and public skepticism, which have led to reduced defense spending.   At London’s Chatham House, Xenia Wickett says the leaders need to make strategic changes at this summit, and convince their people to come along.   “There’s a risk that the summit ends up being about putting out fires, rather than a more strategic summit about where NATO is going," Wickett said.  "So one of the things I will be looking for is that the summit actually is framed and looks much further ahead for a more strategic vision of where NATO is going.”   That has been a perennial question for the alliance since the Cold War.  Now, it is being asked again in response to new threats, one of them from its old adversaries in Moscow.

More than anyone, President Vladimir Putin of Russia has set the agenda for NATO’s 65th summit meeting this week, which could well be the most consequential since the Cold War ended.
Early this year, the alliance was deep into one of its periodic assessments about the future as its role in Afghanistan was winding down. Now Mr. Putin, who has long been eager to see NATO weakened, has forced on it a new and urgent purpose by effectively invading Ukraine and demonstrating his utter disregard for the international system. He seems to delight in taunting the West, including supposedly telling a European official that he could “take Kiev in two weeks,” according to a report in the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
The question is whether NATO is up to the challenge of pushing back against Mr. Putin’s expansionist tendencies, starting with the need to reassure Eastern European countries that feel most threatened by Russia’s push into Ukraine. While leaders of NATO’s 28 member states are expected to reaffirm the alliance’s core principle of common defense — an attack on one is an attack on all — when they meet in Wales, they have serious differences that could undermine the initiatives intended to deal with Russia and other threats.
The summit meeting’s centerpiece is a formal agreement on a new rapid-reaction force of 4,000 troops, capable of deploying on 48 hours’ notice to protect any NATO member from external aggression, which under the current circumstances means Europe’s periphery — the Baltic States and Poland. Wisely, alliance members have decided to abide by the NATO-Russia Founding Act, a 1997 agreement under which NATO pledged not to base substantial forces in Eastern Europe permanently, which could harden the growing divide and make a diplomatic solution to Ukraine, if one is still possible, more difficult.
There are no plans for new permanent bases or deployments, but troops will be rotated to that region for three- to four-month stints. The force will be supported with logistics and equipment, including weapons and fuel, pre-positioned in Eastern European countries closer to Russia. This will be enhanced by more military exercises and air patrols.
All this will take money, which has been a source of friction among NATO members. The United States bears about 75 percent of the alliance budget, while the contributions from most European countries have fallen. That’s partly because of the economic recession and because the United States has always filled any gaps. They are also divided on the threats. For instance, while NATO opposes Russian moves against Ukraine, Eastern Europe feels more directly threatened and determined to act than, say, Italy, which has been more willing to appease Mr. Putin.
The Europeans obviously have to do more, including increasing defense budgets and imposing sanctions on Russia that could finally cause Mr. Putin to reverse his dangerous course in Ukraine. They should use the Wales meeting to make clear they are prepared to back up their words with action.
Even as Russia preoccupies NATO’s attention today, the alliance should not revert to its Cold War role with Russia as its chief focus. The world will also be looking to NATO for leadership on dealing with the Sunni extremists, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. Because of other crises, Afghanistan appears to be getting less attention at this meeting. There are still thousands of American and allied troops on duty there, and NATO has to use its clout and aid money to press the Afghan presidential rivals to settle their election dispute so a president can take office.
NATO is strongest when its members are united in a common purpose, and it will take leadership — and not just talk — from the United States, Germany and others to produce a meaningful consensus.
