U.S. President Donald Trump closed out his chaotic two-day visit to NATO Thursday by declaring victory, claiming that member nations caved to his demands to significantly increase defence spending and reaffirming his commitment to the alliance. Apart from the US, only three North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries hit the two-percent target in 2017-Britain, Greece and Estonia-but four more are expected to clear the threshold this year.
NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison said last week that now 16 of 29 countries are on track to meet that goal.
"I let them know that I was extremely unhappy", he said, but added that the talks had ended on the best of terms: "It all came together at the end".
Woody Johnson, the USA ambassador to the United Kingdom, dismissed the significance of the protests, telling Fox News that one of the reasons the two countries are so close "is because we have the freedoms that we've all fought for".
A source briefed on Mr Trump's meeting with fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations told the New York Times the President had said that if the other countries did not meet the target by January, the USA "would go it alone".
In an apparent swipe at Trump, he added: "Sometimes the corridors, comments and tweets take on more importance than what is negotiated, said or endorsed by heads of state".
President Donald Trump's displeasure with the U.S.'s military allies over their relatively low defense spending is no secret. Also Thursday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg insisted that Georgia will one day join the world's biggest security alliance, despite separatist ambitions in parts of the former Soviet republic.
At the summit working dinner on Wednesday, Theresa May warned Mr Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Russian Federation when he meets President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. "So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".
