    US National Intelligence Director James Clapper stated Friday that US Intelligence Community would work to ensure that the recently released National Security Strategy’s goals were implemented.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US Intelligence Community will work to ensure that the recently released National Security Strategy’s goals are implemented, US National Intelligence Director James Clapper said in a statement on Friday.

    “The National Security Strategy, written by our country’s elected leaders, serves as the foundational document for the National Intelligence Strategy… We will continue to work to ensure policymakers are receiving the best intelligence to anticipate future threats, and meet the goals of the National Security Strategy,” Clapper stated.

    Clapper added that the Intelligence Community “must be consistent with, and responsive to, our national security priorities” laid out in the newly announced US National Security Strategy.

    2015 National Security Strategy was unveiled on Friday morning. It stated that Washington can use military force, unilaterally if necessary, when US citizens are threatened and when the security of US allies is endangered, and ensured that the United States will train and equip local partners in order to strengthen their efforts to fight against terrorism.

    The strategy also stressed that the United States will continue to impose significant costs on Russia through sanctions and other means, at the same time supporting Georgian, Moldovan, and Ukrainian efforts to improve their collaboration with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

    The previous National Security Strategy, issued in 2010, advocated for building more effective partnerships with Russia, as well as India and China, in nuclear non-proliferation and in combating climate change, among other priorities.
