The ministers also announced plans to strengthen its new command structure by more than 1,200 personnel spread across a new Atlantic command center based in Norfolk, Virginia, and a mainland Europe conflict logistics headquarters in Ulm, Germany.

NATO defense ministers have made a decision to build commands to help protect trans-Atlantic sea lines, and support logistics and military mobility within Europe at their last meeting.

He said a day earlier that the move was not "about setting up or deploying new forces - it is about boosting the readiness of existing forces across each and every ally", Stoltenberg said. "There are differences related to issues like trade, the Iran nuclear deal and climate change", he said.

The minister's comments came after Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani visited North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters in March to sign a deal allowing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces and personnel to enter and transit Qatar and use the Al-Udeid Air Base, which houses 10,000 USA military personnel and acts as a base for air operations in the Middle East.

A year ago, Trump embarrassed USA allies outside their new billion-euro headquarters by publicly berating them for failing to spend enough on their defense budgets. "And I think it's still premature to call it a trade war".
