Adviser Trump asked Russia on a new tone and "ID", - CNN

The new adviser to US President Herbert McMaster national security in a number of important issues set the tone that is very different from the one used by his predecessor Michael Flynn, and the White House Donald Trump

This writes CNN .

According to the source channel, at the meeting of National Security McMaster, in particular, has called Russia an enemy, not a friend. This statement contrasts with the position of chief White House strategist Steve Bannon who called the EU "flawed design" and called for strengthening ties with individual European countries. Furthermore, McMaster defended the world order established after World War II, stating the need to maintain peace and security.

McMaster also said that the use of the term "radical Islamic terrorism" which is often used by his predecessor, Michael Flynn and Trump himself, not Washington will work with allies to defeat the purpose of terrorist groups. This phrase, according to him, in vain, because such terrorist organizations as "Islamic state", are a perversion of Islam, and is therefore un-Islamic.

Volker Kauder, leader for Merkel's CDU and allied Bavarian Christian Social Union (CSU) parliamentarians in the Bundestag, told German media group Funke, Censor.NET reports citing DW.

Unfortunately, Russia under President Vladimir Putin seeks to destabilize Europe every day, Kauder said. It should be confronted from a position of strength, but in a way that it doesn't trigger a return to Cold War, he added.

Kauder stressed the threat of global terrorism requires the German military to be even more professional while an increase in defense spending will mean providing soldiers with better weapons.
