NATO in 'war talks' to discuss a 'collective response' to North Korea amid WW3 fears
US ambassador to NATO, Kay Bailey, said that talks were in the “very early stages” to trigger Article 5 of the NATO founding treaty.
This is the founding principle of the treaty that enshrines the notion of collective defence.
Ms Bailey said: “We believe it is a common threat. If it becomes a successful possibility it will not be just America, it will be a much more problematic situation and I think that is beginning to come to the forefront.
