WASHINGTON - Republican and Democratic members of the US House of Representatives introduced a resolution reaffirming American support for NATO on Wednesday, in a rebuke of criticism of the alliance by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

The resolution introduced by Republican Adam Kinzinger and Democrat John Delaney says that the North American Treaty Organization is central to the national security interest of the United States.
Campaigning for president, Trump has said the 67-year-old alliance is obsolete and costs the United States too much, and that European nations should look after their own defense.

"The world is safer with an engaged America, and I firmly believe our participation in NATO greatly matters to America's national security," Kinzinger said in a statement.

Including the two lead sponsors, the resolution was backed by two Republicans and 18 Democrats.
