Italian Defense Minister Elisabetta Trenta called Monday for NATO’s national budget spending rules to be amended to include cyber security and infrastructure costs.

Trenta, a member of the ruling Five Star coalition group, said that NATO guidelines requiring member countries to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product (GDP) on defense should also include non-military investments, as Italy sets out to spend more on social welfare, the Financial Times reported.
