But thanks to Donald Trump, it's making headlines as a potential breakout spot for World WarIII.

USA intelligence services have concluded Moscow had meddled in the election by using social media bots and spreading fake news in an attempt to boost support for Mr Trump.

About this American leader said in an interview with TV host Tucker Carlson on the Fox News channel, which aired the evening of Tuesday, July 17, reports DW.

He demanded that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries "Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025" and then rattled them further by privately suggesting member nations should spend 4 percent of their gross domestic product on defense - a bigger share than even the United States now pays, according to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation statistics.

Alongside Macedonia, Montenegro was the only ex-Yugoslavian country whose decision to split from the federation did not trigger a war, though its soldiers fought against Croatia's war of independence in the 1990s as part of the Yugoslav army.

"Let's say Montenegro, which joined previous year. why should my son go to Montenegro to defend it from attack", Fox News host Tucker Carlson asked Trump. "They may get aggressive, and congratulations, you're in World War III", Trump responded.

Asked whether Putin "outplayed" Trump, Continetti said it's hard to make that conclusion because it's unclear what was agreed to in their meeting.

Carlson: "And I'm not against Montenegro". He also says the country is home to "very aggressive people". "Now I understand that. but that's the way it was set up". "Don't forget, I just got here a little more than a year and a half ago".

The negative feedbacks of Donald Trump's visit to Brussels, his participation in the NATO Summit and his trip to Britain, indeed destroyed the credibility of Trump's America. Montenegrin troops have even participated in USA -led military efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan. His comment appears two days after U.S. President Donald Trump's suggestion that "aggressive" Montenegrins could spark a global conflict.

The idea that a small country like Montenegro "could do something that might anger or upset a neighboring great power like Russian Federation and automatically draw the United States into a major war runs counter to all Trump's instincts".

Speaking on the state of world affairs, Chancellor Angela Merkel took a shot at President Trump leadership, saying Europe could not longer "rely on the superpower of the United States".

Vladimir Putin said some groups in the USA were attempting to sabotage the prospect of better relations between Washington and Moscow for their "narrow party interests".

But State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Trump has been unequivocal in his support of Nato's collective defence.

For several years, Montenegro has faced threats of an encroaching Russian Federation.

So the USA, along with Canada and European allies, is obligated to defend Montenegro in case it is ever invaded.

And for another, the obligation goes both ways.

Based on last year's data, the United States contributes more to the organisation than any other country, at 3.5 per cent of its GDP.

There's nothing authoritarian Russian Federation wants more than to see a divided Europe, and for the USA to retreat from the region.

One is that Trump is Russia's man in the White House.
