NATO summit 2018: NATO Summit set to begin in Brussels.

Dozens of heads of state and government are set to meet in Brussels on Wednesday for what is likely to be a stormy NATO summit.

Although the 29-member military alliance’s annual meetings have traditionally been fairly by-the-books events, expectations are different this year – thanks, in large, to Donald Trump.

In office since January 2017, the US president has been openly critical of many of NATO’s practices, often railing against Washington spending more money on defence than other member states.

Trump’s criticism might put further strain on the relationship between the Western allies, especially following last month’s turbulent G7 meeting.
