NATO chief says increased defence spending top priority after Trump call

Brussels: NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg on Tuesday said the top priority for the transatlantic alliance is to increase defence spending, as demanded by US President Donald Trump.

“Regardless of language, the most important thing is that we increase defence spending and that is exactly what we are doing,” Stoltenberg said when asked about NATO’s response to Trump’s call for it to do more to share the burden with Washington.
