and if we really accomplished a lot with respect to Nato four years presidents have been coming to these meetings and talked about the expense the tremendous expense for the United States and tremendous progress has been made everyone’s great to substantially up their commitment they’re going to up at at levels that they’ve never thought up before prior to last year where I am attending my first meeting it was going down the amount of money being spent and buy countries was going down and down very substantially and now it’s going up for a substantially and commitments were made only 5 of 29 countries were making their commitment and that’s now change the commitment was a tooth ultimately that will be going up quite a bit higher than that so we are we made a tremendous amount of progress today it’s been about at a minimum they estimate and they going to be giving you exact numbers but since why are they raised an additional 33 billion dollars that’s been put up by the various countries not including the United States and the United States commitment to Nato is very strong remains very strong but primarily because everyone the spirit they have the amount of money they willing to spend the additional money that they will be putting up has been really really amazing to see it to see the all of spirit in that room is incredible and I hope that we’re going to be able to get along with Russia I think that we probably will be able to the people in the room think so but they never the last day I stepped up their commitment and stepped it up like they never have before so we took in an additional 33 that the number could actually be higher than 40 when they give you the final number the secretary-general Schoenberg will be giving those numbers sometime today probably in his concluding a press statement but we are we are doing numbers like that never done before or ever seen before and you’ll be seeing that and I guess you’ll be hearing that my little bit laterPresident says allied countries have agreed to up their financial commitment during a press conference in Brussels.
