Belgium: 'I think the SecGen likes Trump,' US president says of NATO's Stoltenberg

SOT, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO Secretary General: «We will discuss how we can make this summit a success, showing that Europe and north America are standing together. And we will continue to focus on defence spending, because as the president just said NATO allies have to invest more in defence and that's exactly what they are doing. So that'll will be the main topic, to dicuss how we can make... Еще further progress on the burden sharing. SOT, Donald Trump, President of the United States: «Over the last year about $40 billion more has been given by other countries to help NATO but that's not nearly enough. The United States is paying far too much, and other countries are not paying enough especially some. And we are going to have a meeting on that. The secretary general has worked very hard on that, he understands the problem. And hopefully we can get a result. This has been going on for decades. And it's disproportionate and not fair to the tax payers of the US, and we're going to make it fairier so that will be it. And I just want to compliment the secretary general. He has worked very hard on this problem. He understands the problem better than anybody. Thank you very much.» *SCRIPT TO FOLLOW*
