NATO's secretary general Jens Stoltenberg urged European allies Monday to ramp up spending on their military budgets as the group works to show Trump that members will pay the 2% of GDP they've agreed to spend on defense, per AP.
Stoltenberg's annual report on the world's biggest military alliance shows that NATO members spent a total of roughly $10 billion more on defense last year than in 2015. And while France and Turkey are not far from meeting the requirement, 7 other members would need to roughly double their spending to get there, and Luxembourg would have to increase its spending four-fold. Meanwhile, Romania, Lithuania and Latvia all expect to reach the target before the end of next year.
Note: Only 5 NATO countries meet the target. For more see our NATO Facts Matter.
