U.S. President Donald Trump did not threaten to quit NATO during a summit on Thursday, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite told reporters after the meeting in Brussels.

Asked whether anything Trump said might have been interpreted as a warning that the United States could withhold defence capabilities from allies in Europe, she said: "I would not interpret it that way."Grybauskaite, whose Baltic nation is among those on NATO's front line with an increasingly assertive Russia, said Trump insisted that allies do more to quickly raise defence spending.
