Allies would be increasing spending by $33 billion or more, he added.

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg "has therefore convened a meeting in Atlantic Council format, which involves all 29 countries in the alliance".

He claimed afterwards that there had been "tremendous progress" and that other members had agreed to increase their military spending after his "firm" warnings.

But now, according to media reports, Trump has threatened to withdraw the USA from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO, ) or to change its pivotal role in the alliance, over the matter.

At one point, in a break with diplomatic protocol, a source said Trump addressed German Chancellor Merkel by her first name and told her: "Angela, you need to do something about this". "And I know that's valued very highly over here and people can disagree strongly and still go out to dinner".

"There should be no one-on-one meeting between this president and Mr. Putin".

Trump reportedly broke diplomatic protocol on Thursday by referring to German Chancellor Angela Merkel by her first name, and his intense demands regarding defense spending saw North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders enter a special emergency session.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported Trump as saying "I'll do my own thing" if spending is not immediately increased.

Mr Trump also zeroed in on Mrs Merkel's Germany as he criticised the country's reliance on Russian Federation for energy, adding how can you look for peace when somebody has that much power over you.

"The commitment was at two percent and that'll be going up quite a bit higher than that", he said. And Trump should definitely not meet him alone. "The president was questioned in the United Kingdom why relations with Russian Federation are at a bad state", Warner said.

Since taking office, President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized North Atlantic Treaty Organisation over how the alliance is funded and pressured other member states to increase defense spending.

Forbes also says Jenner is the 27th-richest self-made woman in the United States, beating out the rest of her family. But many people on Twitter took issue with the magazine's claim that she was "self-made".


The French President said: There is a communique that was published yesterday.

Mr Trump pumps his fist during his arrival in Regent's Park, London, to spend the night at the residence of the US Ambassador.

The third week of July has been designated as "Captive Nations Week" since 1959.

Trump took to Twitter to say publicly what he told North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders privately on Wednesday, calling on all allies to meet a commitment agreed in 2014 to spend 2 percent of economic output on defense to counter threats ranging from Russia's military modernization to militant attacks on European cities.

The Russian intelligence officers were charged with hacking the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign - the latest charges brought in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. But he did not rule out recognising Rissia's annexation of Crimea.

It was the most recent in a series of demands and insults that critics fear will undermine the decades-old alliance, coming days before Trump sits down with Putin at the conclusion of his closely watched European trip.

In the meantime, President Donald Trump has arrived in Great Britain for his first visit as president amid North Atlantic Treaty Organisation tensions, protests and Brexit turmoil.

Donald Trump arrives in the United Kingdom on Thursday for his first visit as president, during which he will meet the Queen and Theresa May and visit Scotland.

"So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".

"You know, the two per cent was a range, a goal, it wasn't something they were committed to".
