(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) President Joe Biden suggested that NATO would be willing to use chemical warfare if Russian President Vladimir Putin initiated that type of war.

At a meeting with European leaders in Brussels, Biden was asked to clarify NATO’s stance on the use of chemical warfare.

“To clarify, on chemical weapons: Could — if chemical weapons were used in Ukraine, would that trigger a military response from NATO?”

Biden responded by suggesting that NATO would in fact be willing to respond with the use of chemical weapons in turn, reported the Western Journal.

“It would re- — it would trigger a response in kind, whether or not — you’re asking whether NATO would cross; we’d make that decision at the time,” he replied.

Biden also emphasized the need for the world to unify against Russia, and suggested that the West be prepared to do what it take to slow down Putin.

“The single most important thing is for us to stay unified and the world to continue to focus on what a brute this guy is,” Biden said of Putin. “And all the innocent people’s lives that will be lost and ruined.”

He also reassured reporters that America’s relationship with China remains strong because China knows where its true economic assets lie, despite rumors that it has kept its economy open to Russia.

“I think that China understands that its economic future’s much more closely tied to the West than it is to Russia,” Biden said.

Jens Stoltenberg, secretary-general of NATO, also said that the Russian use of chemical weapons would change the nature of the war.

“It will be a blatant violation of international law and with far-reaching consequences,” Stoltenberg said.

Biden also noted that he has pledged for the United States to take in 100,000 Ukrainian refugees, despite the fact that one third refugees from the nation are not even Ukrainian.
