Nato summit: Leaders arrive at Buckingham Palace for event hosted by the Queen

Buckingham Palace event to be hosted by the Queen Prince Andrew ‘a very tough story’, President says Trump on Corbyn | ‘I know nothing about him, honestly’ US wants ‘nothing to do’ with NHS ‚Äč Nato leaders have begun to arrive at Buckingham Palace ahead of a reception to be hosted by the Queen on Tuesday evening. It comes following an earlier diplomatic flare-up between Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron. The US president denounced a claim by Mr Macron that the alliance was suffering from “brain death” as “very insulting” to other member states. But when the two men met later, at the US ambassador’s residence in London, Mr Trump acknowledged the need for greater “flexibility” in the way in which Nato responded to global threats. Mr Macron insisted he stood by his original remarks, while acknowledging US concerns that other allies had not borne their fair share of the financial burden for collective defence. Mr Trump said they had had a “very good discussion”, and welcomed Mr Macron’s comments about financial burden-sharing. Mr Johnson hosted talks with Mr Macron, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel ahead of the main gathering in an attempt to iron out some of the differences between them. The main Nato talks will take place on Wednesday at The Grove, a country house hotel near Watford. The meeting is expected to consider new threats, including in the areas of cyber and space, after the alliance last month declared space one of its operational domains alongside air, land, sea and cyber. 7:16PM Nato leaders gather at Buckingham Palace Leaders of Nato member states and its secretary general join the Queen and the Prince of Wales for a group picture Credit: Yui Mok /PA The leaders of Nato alliance countries …read more
