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.

On his debut trip to Brussels as secretary of defence a year ago after Trump questioned the need for NATO, Mattis told members that while they must honour military spending pledges, the alliance was "the most successful and powerful military alliance in modern history". Insist the United States. During a meeting with Stoltenberg, Trump told reporters, the July Nato summit "will be both interesting and exciting".

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".

The official representative of the block NATO, said that Qatar can not rely on the accession to the North Atlantic Alliance. Spending by European governments, Turkey and Canada is expected to rise by 3.82 percent in 2018, which would be the fourth straight year of increases and would mean an $87.3 billion cumulative increase since 2015.
