applescript claims `missing value` with UI element path it is giving me

My applescript is written as follows:

tell application "System Events"      get every static text of UI element 1 of row 1 of table 1 of scroll area 1 of sheet 1 of window "Settings" of application process "NordVPN IKE" end tell 

it yields

{static text “United States #2632” of UI element “United States #2632” of row 1 of table 1 of scroll area 1 of sheet 1 of window “Settings” of application process “NordVPN IKE” of application “System Events”}

so far so good.

With a little copy-paste magic, my applescript now reads:

tell application "System Events"     click static text "United States #2632" of UI element "United States #2632" of row 1 of table 1 of scroll area 1 of sheet 1 of window "Settings" of application process "NordVPN IKE" end tell 

The Result is missing value. It doesn’t say invalid index or anything like that but it doesn’t click on the text. How do I get it to click on the text?
