The US President Donald trump will take part in the meeting of NATO leaders, which will take place in Europe during the second half of may. It is reported TASS citing a statement issued by the press service of the White house after a telephone conversation with trump’s Secretary General of the Alliance Jens Stoltenberg

“The leaders discussed how to persuade all NATO members to meet their funding commitments to the Alliance”, — said the press service. The parties agreed on the need to continue to coordinate the actions of the US and NATO “to respond to the entire spectrum of security challenges facing the Alliance”.

Also the subject of conversation was the situation in Ukraine. “The parties discussed the possibility of a peaceful resolution of the conflict along the Ukrainian border”, — said in a statement.

January 15, trump said he considers NATO an outdated organization. “First, it (…) was designed many years ago. Second, countries are no longer paying what they should pay,” he said. Also, in his opinion, the Alliance is not enough attention to terrorism, which is a disadvantage. The politician admitted that, despite all this, NATO is “very important for him”.
