Amid the controversy over Donald Trump’s demand that NATO nations meet their financial obligations before they expect the United States to defend them, NATO’s top commander says he agrees it’s important for alliance members to pay their bills, Washington Examiner reports.

In an interview at the Aspen Security Forum, Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti said it’s something he regularly discusses with other countries.

“What I tell them typically is that look, we have a people and a Congress with a tough budget as well,” Scaparrotti said Thursday night. “So as a leader of another country you have to put your share into this, you have to do that because when I go back to testify to Congress I get asked these questions.”

Pressuring NATO members to meet their commitments is a position Trump has not backed off of, despite criticism from Democrats and some national security experts, who argue it sends the wrong message and could embolden Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has already seized territory in Ukraine, which is not a NATO member.

Speaking in Miami Wednesday, Trump said, “I think NATO’s great. But it’s got to be modernized, and countries that we’re protecting have to pay what they’re supposed to be paying.”

Scaparrotti, NATO’s supreme commander, says as of now only five of the 28 NATO nations are meeting their pledge to spend at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense.

Only three countries have met that goal- The United States, The United Kingdom and Poland.
