During his stay in the country, Stoltenberg will meet with senior US officials and members of Congress. However, the NATO chief is not expected to meet with President Donald Trump, who has been a harsh critic of the military alliance.
The State Department has announced Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will meet Stoltenberg on Friday.
Trump has called NATO obsolete, but said after the alliance's summit in Brussels in July that NATO is becoming strong again because of his efforts to hold member states accountable with respect to their defense spending commitments.
