ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Vice President Mike Pence arrived in Germany on Friday (February 17) ahead of the Munich Security Conference where he is expected to issue a message of reassurance to NATO allies. Pence will say that Europe is an "indispensable partner" for the United States, a senior White House foreign policy adviser told reporters. His arrival came hours after Republican Senator John McCain broke with the reassuring message, saying President Donald Trump's administration was in "disarray." McCain, a known Trump critic, told the Munich Security Conference that the resignation of the new president's security adviser Michael Flynn over his contacts with Russia reflected deep problems in Washington. European governments have been unsettled by the signals sent by Trump on a range of foreign policy issues ranging from NATO and Russia to Iran, Israel and European integration.
