article imageProfessor: NATO may cease to exist within next two decades

By Andrew Moran     Dec 19, 2009 in World
Gerhard Mangott, a political science professor, told Russia Today on Thursday that it is quite important to Russia to maintain a relationship with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization as it may cease to exist within the next two decades.
Throughout the 1950s “Mr. Republican” Robert Taft opposed the United States’ involvement with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization because he was against sending more US troops to Europe and that it would provoke the Soviet Union.
According to an interview with political science professor, Gerhard Mangott, who came to the conclusion that NATO will not be around anymore within the next 15 to 20 years, so in the mean time the Russian Federation should have good relations with the alliance but added that it’s not too important, reports Russia Today.
Mangott said, “In the West there is a very long and very serious debate about if there’s any future for NATO because there’s no real threat to NATO, there is no real enemy. So maybe in 10 to 15 years from now there will be no alliance.”
The professor added that it’s more important for Russia to develop relations with the nations who are involved within NATO, reports the Voice of Russia.
