Former secretary of state John Kerry blasted President Trump's criticism of Germany in a lengthy statement on Wednesday morning as "strange", "counterproductive", and "disgraceful". "They answered. They have fought with American troops for seventeen years".

"NATO and the transatlantic geographical area is only a part of what the United States military does".

In the photo were: German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump, and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Back in the USA, the Senate on Tuesday voted 97-2 on a motion of support for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

They account for a major portion of the USA agricultural exports to China. Therefore, no delinquency or question of reimbursement. But there are no IOUs to collect from past years.

Stoltenberg agreed there should be more done to prompt allies to invest more in their defense.

The alliance set a goal in 2014 for each country to reach the 2% of GDP spending target by 2024. He has repeatedly claimed that because of his pressure "billions and billions of dollars are pouring in", which is not true, because there is no such fund for money to pour into.

The attack on the Skripals was an example of a growing disregard for "the norms and laws that help to keep us safe", she said, and undermined her vision for a rules-based global order.

"If you look at it, Germany is a captive of Russian Federation".

"The alliance is very important and I think there's ways of communicating our displeasure with things without trying to insult and break the alliance apart", said Corker. The pointed criticism is likely related to the construction of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. One-third came from renewable energy.

The Kremlin hopes to increase the dependence of Germany and Western Europe on Russian gas while depriving Ukraine and other inconvenient states of the transit fees Russia must pay to use current pipelines. But Germany has not "got rid" of either. "I just don't want us to be too friendly with them like he was with Kim Jong Un, although I supported that summit", Richardson said.

Trump said: "We're protecting Germany, we're protecting France, we're protecting all of these countries".

"We're supposed to be guarding against Russia and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia", Trump said in the presence of reporters at a pre-summit meeting at the residence of the USA ambassador to Belgium.

"President Trump has a very direct language and message on defence spending, but fundamentally we all agree that we need fair burden sharing", Stoltenberg said on his arrival at the summit.

Trump has promoted exports of US natural gas to Europe as an alternative to Russian Federation as a supply source, although USA gas is far more costly because of the expense of shipping it. It's been invoked only once - to help the U.S. after the September 11 terrorist attacks.
