Germany Defence Minister @vdleyen:

"Trump is a business man. He will understand that spending is not just about input, but also about output. You can spend 2% on your national defence budget, but not do anything for NATO. Focus must be on capabilities."

"A more peaceful, more resilient, more democratic world is good for @Canada.

We deeply believe in @NATO's values:

Peace, security & #DefendingDemocracy are as relevant today as ever." -
