Stoltenberg was the first Norwegian ever accorded the rare honor of such an address.
“NATO has been good for Europe, but NATO has also been good for the United States,” Stoltenberg said.
Stoltenberg met on Tuesday with Trump, who said his pressure on NATO nations to pay more for their defense is leading to tens of billions of dollars more in contributions, but the allies may need to boost their budgets even more. Stoltenberg said NATO member countries are “adding billions” in defense spending.
