"Russian Federation is a permanent member of the [United Nations] Security Council, it's a nuclear weapons state, it has global reach, whether it's in the Middle East, the Korean peninsula, or elsewhere, and I think it behooves us to have that kind of dialogue", he said.
"All allies have heard President Trump's message loud and clear", Stoltenberg told reporters as he wrapped up the summit.
Asked about pressures on countries with weaker finances, he said, "We have many wealthy countries with us today but we have some that aren't so wealthy and they did ask me if they could buy the military equipment, and could I help them out, and we will help them out a little bit", he told a news conference. On one side, the United States and Canada.
On Thursday, Trump arrived late to the official meetings, missed scheduled sit-downs with two allies on the margins of the summit, and skipped part of a session on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission in Afghanistan to hold the impromptu news conference.
Hours later, he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel met privately and discussed the pipeline, each reaffirming the partnership between the US and Germany. But not before Merkel and other top officials in the German government had publicly fired back at Trump's breakfast diatribe.
But on Thursday, Trump came ready to tussle. "President Trump must demand and secure a real, concrete and comprehensive agreement that the Russians will cease their ongoing attacks on our democracy".

"There is a communiqué that was published yesterday. It's very detailed", Macron said. Then, in a closed-door session with allies, he suggested that even spending the agreed-upon 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense wasn't enough.
Trump said he made his anger clear to allies on Wednesday.
Nonetheless, he has simultaneously asserted that the US should pay less.
After leading allies to believe that the US might abandon its commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, President Trump reversed course at an impromptu press conference.

That's because, despite the political rhetoric, Trump - like his other 28 allies - signed a summit communique that had been agreed to by their ambassadors last weekend, five days before the summit began. "I'm very consistent", he replied. "And I know that's valued very highly over here and people can disagree strongly and still go out to dinner".
President Donald Trump is continuing to court controversy during his trip to Europe.
