Flags of NATO member countries are seen at the Alliance headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, Nov. 26, 2019.
LONDON - As Britain prepares for the NATO leaders' meeting outside London December 3-4, the alliance said Thursday it had agreed to redistribute costs and cut the U.S. contribution to its central budget.
NATO's central budget is relatively small at around $2.5 billion a year, mostly covering headquarters operations and staff, and different than its defense budget. U.S. President Donald Trump often complains of inequitable burden-sharing, with only nine of the 29 member countries meeting the 2% of gross domestic product target for the alliance's defense spending.
