NATO summit to take place on June 14 in Brussels

NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg announced on Thursday that the next Summit of Allied leaders will take place June 14 at NATO’s headquarters in Brussels

“We will take decisions on our substantive and forward-looking NATO 2030 agenda to deal with the challenges of today and tomorrow: Russia’s aggressive actions, the threat of terrorism, cyber-attacks, emerging and disruptive technologies, the security impact of climate change, and the rise of China,” said NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in a press release.

The summit will be the first of the post-Trump era, and will likely mark a return to normality in the US membership under President Joe Biden.

As President, Donald Trump was noticeably hostile to NATO, frequently complaining of members’ alleged failure to support the alliance monetarily, and generally serving as a disruptive presence at meetings. He was widely rumoured to favour the US exiting NATO, according to news.az.
