Greece commended for defence spending

Obama has congratulated Greece on being one of only five NATO members to meet the requirement for a member country to spend at least 2% of its GDP on defence.

The five countries according to figures based on 2010 prices and exchange rates:

  1. US 3.61%
  2. Greece 2.38%
  3. UK 2.21%
  4. Estonia 2.16%
  5. Poland 2%

Trump’s desire to see EU countries pay their fair share on defence isn’t new. Might it be time they stepped up to the plate?
