US President Donald Trump does not want the United States to withdraw from NATO.
His remarks came during an interview with Marc Thiessen, one of the observers for The Washington Post and Fox.
According to Trump, he only wants them to pay their fair share.
In an interview, the US president spoke of the steps he had taken to counter Russia - efforts to persuade US allies in NATO to increase funding for the alliance.
He also noted that thanks to his actions, eight NATO member states are fulfilling their obligations, spending at least 2% of GDP on defense needs.
Trump reaffirmed his intention to transfer part of the American troops from Germany to Poland.
