MATTIS ON QATAR CRISIS: RUSSIA 'TRYING TO BREAK' WORLD ALLIANCES

“I think a disruption of the international order is something that Russia, in a shortsighted way, thinks works to their benefit,” Mattis responded during a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing.


“I think it does not, but I can't speak for them. I think what you're seeing here, though, is the continued prevalence of threats, not just to our own country, not just the Western Europe democracies, but they're trying to break any kind of multilateral alliance, I think, that is a stabilizing influence in the world.”
