President Trump, NATO Secretary General Hold Press Conference

13 April, 2017, 02:25 | Author: Glenda Knight

The comments also came a day after president Donald Trump approved Montenegro's accession to the alliance and prepared to meet NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House later in the day.

Following talks with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House, the United States president again called on alliance members to spend two per cent of their GDP on defence.

Mr Trump has repeatedly questioned Nato's objective, while complaining that the U.S. pays an unfair share of membership. "It's no longer obsolete", Trump said.

He said he discussed with Stoltenberg his desire that allies fulfill their responsibility to spent 2 percent of its GDP on defense by 2024.

The Russian foreign minister said that "despite the quantity of existing problems. there are considerable prospects for joint work".

Tillerson's trip has been dominated by USA criticism of Russia's unwavering support for Syrian President Bashar Assad following a gruesome poison-gas attack in northern Syria last week blamed on Assad's forces. When asked if his views of Putin have changed, Trump said, "We are going to see".

United Kingdom foreign minister cancels planned visit to Moscow over Syria's
Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Ankara sees the U.S. intervention in Syria as appropriate but not enough. Trump has changed his tack, drawing Russian opprobrium as a result.

Trump also had harsh words for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, saying he has "absolutely no doubt" the US did the right thing with a military strike he ordered over the weekend. "We had good bonding, good chemistry; he wants to help us with North Korea, and I said the way we are going to make a good trade deal is to hep us with North Korea".

On March 28, the U.S. senate approved the ratification of the protocol for Montenegro's accession to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in an overwhelming and bipartisan vote of advice and consent, the government added. "Many have not been doing that", Trump said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said the level of trust between Russia and the US has slipped after Trump's election.

"We need many different tools to stabilize our neighborhood", Stoltenberg said last month.

"Trust at the working level, especially at the military level, hasn't gotten better; rather, it's deteriorated", Putin said in an interview with the Mir TV channel that aired Wednesday. "I have absolutely no doubt we did the right thing, and it was very, very successfully done", he added.
