NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg introduced the agenda of this week’s in-person meetings of NATO Defence Ministers in a press conference on Wednesday (20 October 2021). Ministers will take decisions to strengthen our collective security and lay the ground for NATO Summit in Madrid next June.
They will also take steps to keep the Alliance’s technological edge and continue to assess how we can further strengthen our deterrence and defence. Furthermore, they will discuss Afghanistan with the aim to ensure that terrorists cannot use Afghanistan as a safe haven; and they will meet with the Alliance’s partners Finland and Sweden, and the European Union, to discuss what more we can do together in an age of global competition.
