US President Joe Biden met with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg to discuss the June 14 summit in Brussels and expressed his strong commitment to working closely with allies, the White House has said.
A meeting of NATO Heads of State and Government will be held on 14th June in Brussels at NATO headquarters. The meeting will be headed by Stoltenberg.
President, during his meeting with Stoltenberg, expressed his strong commitment to working closely with allies to build on NATO’s seven decades of success protecting transatlantic security and democratic values, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said.
“The two leaders agreed on the importance of the NATO 2030 initiative to adapt the Alliance to meet the challenges of strategic competition and transnational threats, including climate change, and cyberattacks. They also reviewed Allies’ progress over the last seven years in boosting defence spending and other contributions to our common defence, underscoring the importance of sharing responsibility equitably within NATO and ensuring NATO is adequately resourced to address the threat environment,” Psaki said.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) is an intergovernmental military alliance between 30 European and North American countries. Its basic objective is to safeguard the allies’ freedom and security by political and military means.
