NATO Chief Not Shocked By Trump's 'Blunt, Direct' Speech

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg wasn't shocked by Donald Trump’s "blunt and direct" speech on defense spending during the U.S. president's first meeting with alliance leaders in Brussels. In an interview with RFE/RL's Brussels correspondent, Rikard Jozwiak, a day after the May 25 gathering, Stoltenberg said NATO leaders were committed to fairer burden sharing. Stoltenberg said leaders also discussed Russia and Ukraine at a working dinner following the unveiling of NATO's new headquarters in Brussels. (NATO TV, RFE/RL)
