Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday The United States will respond to any Russian aggression against NATO allies, as he visited Baltic countries worried about Russia’s annexation of Crimea. He said “The president wanted me to come personally to make it clear what you already know that under Article 5 under the NATO treaty, we will respond." Biden's visit is intended to reassure nations like Poland and the Baltics that the United States will live up to its NATO pledge to protect allies under attack.
