Trump made waves in the British press by calling Boris Johnson, who yesterday quit Prime Minister Theresa May's government, "a friend" - while refusing to back her government. "So I have North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, I have the United Kingdom which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin".
For his part, Stoltenberg also welcomed the meeting between Trump and Putin, saying that "for me, dialogue is not a sign of weakness".
