Montenegro's Markovic Shrugs Off Trump Shoving Incident At NATO Summit

"Many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years", repeating a charge he had raised constantly on the campaign trail.

And Stoltenberg said later that Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and other US officials have stated clearly their assurances.

Our NATO allies responded swiftly and decisively, invoking for the first time in its history the Article 5 collective defense commitments.

"Terrorism must be stopped or ... the horror you saw in Manchester and so many other places will continue forever", Trump said, referring to Monday's suicide bombing in the northern English city that killed 22 people, including children.

The surprising focus on immigration echoed another key feature of Trump's campaign, which included a vow to build a border wall with Mexico, a measure derided in Europe. "If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism".

As a presidential candidate, Trump railed against NATO's financial burden-sharing, suggesting that the USA might go to the defense only of the countries that meet the alliance's guidelines - committing 2 percent of their gross domestic product to military spending.

"It's fair to whack Mr. Trump if he indulges his many bad instincts, but it serves no one other than Vladimir Putin to suggest without evidence that the US won't honor its North Atlantic Treaty Organisation commitments-or to drive a wedge between allies simply to make Mr. Trump look bad".

Analyst Thomas Wright of the Washington-based Brookings Institution said Trump's failure to publicly declare this was "shocking and damaging".

"We agreed on many areas, first and foremost on counter-terrorism", Tusk said after he and European Union chief executive Jean-Claude Juncker met Trump for over an hour.

Balkan Prime Minister Dusko Markovic is having none of it.

The leaders' meeting quickly expanded to wider talks where Trump also met with European Parliament President Antonio Tajani and EU diplomatic chief Federica Mogherini.

"The Germans are bad, very bad".

"See the millions of cars they are selling in the US. Terrible! We'll stop that".
