BRUSSELS (AP) - Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's secretary general, congratulated Donald Trump on winning the presidency at a press conference on Wednesday morning.
Stoltenberg also laid out the issues for the U.S. to address with NATO after the republican nominee won the presidency.
In Brussels, Stoltenberg expressed his desire for a strong U.S.-NATO partnership with strong U.S. leadership in response to 21st-century warfare challenges in Europe.
Just this week NATO is mobilizing 300,000 NATO troops on 'high alert' to counter Russian build-up in military spending, and military actions in Europe and the Middle East.
Stoltenberg says he's looking forward to meeting the president-elect soon.
