The White House has announced US President Donald Trump’s travel plans to Europe for a NATO summit in May, a day after it was revealed that his secretary of state will skip the April 5-6 NATO meeting in Brussels.

Trump will participate in the NATO summit on May 25, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said in a statement issued on Tuesday.

The president “looks forward to meeting with his NATO counterparts to reaffirm our strong commitment to NATO, and to discuss issues critical to the alliance, especially allied responsibility-sharing and NATO’s role in the fight against terrorism,” Spicer said.

He further said that NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg will travel to the White House on April 12 to meet with Trump.

“They will talk about how to strengthen the alliance to cope with challenges to national and international security,” the press secretary added.
