"There is no relationship we cherish more than the Special Relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom", Trump said in the statement and promised that his administration would get to the bottom of the matter.

Ms Merkel, who stood emotionless during the speech, earlier issued her own challenge to the U.S. president, saying that member states including Germany had already pledged to work toward the 2 per cent target by 2024 and that outlays on security more generally also count toward the goal. Some nations, though, have failed to meet that threshold.

The halt in sharing with the United States of police information about the attack will remain in place until assurances are received from Washington that there will be no further leaks, news reports said Thursday.

"And I'm not 100 percent sure that we can say today - we means President Trump and myself - that we have a common position, a common opinion about Russian Federation although when it comes to the conflict in Ukraine it seems that we were on the same line", he added.

The summit will revolve around two main topics, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters on Wednesday. Far from robustly reaffirming Nato's mutual defence commitment in the way many members hoped he would, Mr Trump repeated his complaint that the U.S. was shouldering an unfair burden.

During a speech at NATO's new headquarters, Trump went on an off-script tangent in which he criticized North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies who he felt were not paying enough into the organization, despite the payments being set based on the individual country's domestic spending.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer, asked about Trump moving past Markovic, said he had not seen the video but assumed the USA president was moving to his designated spot.

Counter-terrorism and other issues were also on the agenda for the one-day summit.

Investigators want to know more about a December meeting with the Russian ambassador who then arranged for Kushner to meet with the head of a Russian-owned bank. First and foremost, on counter-terrorism, and I am sure that I do not have to explain why. "I refused to do that", he said. And the new French president pushed Trump on a sweeping climate agreement and even engaged in an apparent handshake stand-off. "The greatest task today is the consolidation of the whole free world around those values, and not just interests". "President Trump, during the campaign, had not shown a full commitment to that".
