President Donald Trump said Thursday in an unscheduled news conference that all NATO members have agreed to increase their defence spending after he told them he was "extremely unhappy".

Axar.az reported citing CNN.

"Everyone has agreed to substantially up their commitment. They're going to up it at levels that they never thought of before," Trump said.

"I told people that I'd be very unhappy if they didn't up to their financial commitments substantially," Trump said when asked if he threatened to pull out of the alliance. "I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening, and they have now substantially upped their commitment."
