International Business Times cites the Atlantic Council for hosting an event with NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen:
Anders Fogh Rasmussen, the general secretary of NATO, on Monday told the Atlantic Council of the United States that NATO’s 28 member countries should spend at least 2 percent of their GDP on defense — something that only the U.S., United Kingdom, Greece and Estonia have achieved, though Turkey, Poland, Romania, Latvia and Lithuania have promised to reach that level by 2020.
“I am not the first to say that some European nations can and should do more,” Rasmussen said, echoing the May 2014 comments of U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel . “NATO is an insurance policy against instability. All members must pay their premiums, and that premium has just gone up.”
