NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has said he is confident President-elect Donald Trump would honor U.S. security commitments in Europe. Addressing a conference in Brussels hosted by the German Marshall Fund, Stoltenberg said NATO was key to providing stability on both sides of the Atlantic. The head of the 28-member military alliance also said increasing European defense spending was a top priority. Trump caused concern during the U.S. presidential election campaign when he called NATO "obsolete" and said the U.S. could withhold support from alliance members unless they increased military spending.
