Statements by US President Donald trump, made at a summit in Brussels, does not mean the country’s exit from NATO. This writes Reuters Thursday, July 12, with reference to sources in the Alliance.
Claims against member States because of insufficient military spending and the prosecution of Germany that it was “caught in Russia,” — not the threat of exit from the block, explained the Agency interlocutor.
July 11, trump demanded that the leaders of member States of the Alliance to double military spending. According to him, instead of my selections above two percent, the NATO countries must contribute to the military four percent of GDP. The Agency also quoted him as saying that to reach this target the country needs before 2024, as stated in the joint Declaration signed by the participants of the block.
The United States spends on NATO 3.58 percent of GDP — more than any other.
