Secretary General: NATO is a bedrock of security for both Europe and North America
On Tuesday, the Secretary General met President Donald Trump at the White House to discuss the importance of NATO for the security of both North America and Europe. The two leaders agreed that NATO should enhance its role in the fight against terrorism and continue working towards fair burden-sharing in the Alliance. These will be key topics addressed at May’s meeting of Allied leaders in Brussels.

Following their meeting, Mr. Stoltenberg welcomed the very strong commitment of the United States to the security of Europe, and underlined the importance of the transatlantic bond. He said: “In a more dangerous and more unpredictable world, it’s important to have friends and Allies. And in NATO, America has the best friends and the best Allies in the world.”

Earlier on Tuesday, Mr. Stoltenberg laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery in tribute to the fallen US servicemen and women, describing it as “a deeply moving experience.”
