“Trump threatens to pull US out of NATO in defence spending row,” the agency wrote.
According to 112 Ukraine TV channel correspondent, at the end of the meeting of “NATO-Ukraine-Georgia” commission, American President took a word and asked all the partners, except NATO member states, out. He went to with the closed meeting, having canceled all the scheduled arrangements, including the meeting with Poroshenko, as well as Presidents of Georgia, Romania, and Azerbaijan.
Reuters news agency reported that Trump did not threaten to pull out of NATO at the second day of a summit on Thursday, despite a tough rebuke of allies for spending too little on defense.
Earlier it was reported that Trump told NATO leaders on Wednesday they should increase their defense spending to 4 percent of their country’s economic output, double the group’s current goal of two percent.
