A major Nato conference, which was held in Copenhagen, has been cancelled after there was disagreement with determined to find Stanley Sloan.
It happened just two hours after the well-known Nato-expert wrote on Twitter that he would be the keynote speaker at the Danish Atlantic Councils celebration of NATO's 70th birthday,
the Reason for that Atlantsammenslutningen that should have held the conference, decided to cancel it all, is that the american ambassador in Denmark Carla Sands vetoed sloan's participation.
"We have always known that Stanley Sloan has a critical approach to president Donald Trump. It is no secret. It looks, if you follow Twitter and Facebook," says Atlantsammenslutningens secretary general, ph.d. Lars Bangert Struwe, in a press release and continues:
"however, We have never been in doubt that Stanley Sloan at our conference would provide a non-partisan and objective post. This had Stanley Sloan promised us. Therefore, we held firm in Stanley r. Sloan as the speaker, until the american ambassador demanded that Stanley sloan's participation was cancelled."
But why cancel the entire conference, you might be thinking.
Lars Bangert Struwe says that it was an excessively problematic scenario.
"We can't stand in this situation - let alone ask our presenters about it," he says.
Above you can see Stanley sloan's tweets, where he comments on the cancellation.
'Cancelled! I have just received a message from the Danish Atlantic Council, which says that the us embassy in Copenhagen has vetoed my participation because of my critical attitude to Trumps impact on the transatlantic relationship,' he writes.
He also writes that he is both shocked and worried.
Furthermore, he has chosen to share his entire presentation on Facebook. It you can read here under, if it has interest.
however, There are some who disagree with ambassador Carla Sands decision.
"I've read the planned presentations. In the roses Stanley r. Sloan, fol.a. the american ambassador for the support given to the values, which are tied to our common defense. In addition, I see no direct or indirect personangreb against president Donald Trump."
so says Niels-Ole Mannerup, who is head of secretariat in Atlantsammenslutningen
Carla Sands have not even given any explanation as to why she believed that Stanley Sloan had to be excluded from the conference.Updated Date: 08 December 2019, 12:00
