LONDON (Reuters) - NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said on Thursday the military alliance needed Britain’s defense capabilities after a news report said Prime Minister Theresa May had told her defense minister that he needed to rethink them.

At a speech in London, Stoltenberg also said a possible meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin did not contradict NATO policy.
