Foreign Pool Report - NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg
Philip Crowther • France 24
April 12, 2017: 03:10 PM

Today in the Oval Office, the visit of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Pool was brought into the Oval Office at 3 PM, and sent out again at 3:01 PM.

One single quote from POTUS: "It never ends." Said while press was filing out of the Oval Office and presumably in reference to the relatively large group of reporters.

Per Stoltenberg's spokesperson Oana Lungescu, the following members of the NATO delegation were also expected for the meeting, though they were not present for the spray at the top:

Ambassador Torgeir Larsen, Director of the Private Office
Arndt Freytag von Loringhoven, Assistant Secretary General for Intelligence and Security
Oana Lungescu, Spokesperson
Dawn Schrepel, Deputy Director of the Private Office
Stein Hernes, Special Advisor on Strategic Communications
Allison Hart, Executive Office, Public Diplomacy Division

This morning Stoltenberg laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery. Tomorrow Thursday he will take part in a town hall event at the Elliott School of International Affairs at George Washington University here in Washington.

This was the first face-to-face meeting between Trump and Stoltenberg. Previously, they have had two phone calls, the first one just after the election, the second one in the days following the inauguration.
