UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to call for NATO unity amid growing tensions within the military bloc as NATO leaders gather in London to celebrate seven decades of the most successful military alliance in history.

The summit to mark the founding of the 29-member defense alliance 70 years ago is underway near London.

The gathering is overshadowed by a bitter row between France and Turkey, and a continuing debate over money.

Last month, French President Emmanuel Macron described NATO as “brain dead”, saying alliance members were no longer co-operating on a range of key issues.
