    © Sputnik /

    The alliance has gone through several stages of expansion and currently includes 29 members.

    Take a look at the history of NATO's expansion as the alliance's members are set to hold a summit in Brussels on July 11-12. Back in 2014, NATO member states pledged to end cuts to their defense spending, and gradually increase spending toward the alliance's designated 2-percent GDP target within a decade.
