Nato members pledged during a summit in Wales last year to reverse the trend of declining defence budgets and increase investment as economies recovered.

They agreed that countries already meeting the target of spending 2% of national income would continue to do so and those failing to reach the figure would halt any decline and move towards the agreed level.

Here is a breakdown of how much each of the 28 alliance members spent on defence as a percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) in 2013 according to Nato records:

  • Albania - 1.4

  • Belgium - 1

  • Bulgaria - 1.4

  • Canada - 1

  • Croatia - 1.5

  • Czech Republic - 1.1

  • Denmark - 1.4

  • Estonia - 2

  • France - 1.9

  • Germany - 1.3

  • Greece - 2.3

  • Hungary - 0.9

  • Italy - 1.2

  • Latvia - 0.9

  • Lithuania - 0.8

  • Luxembourg - 0.4

  • Netherlands - 1.3

  • Norway - 1.4

  • Spain - 0.9

  • Turkey - 1.8

  • United Kingdom - 2.4

Iceland is not included in the list because it has no armed forces.
