The North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) is a central pillar of Germany’s security and defence policy. With 30 members at present, NATO guarantees security and stability in the Euro-Atlantic area.
Other topics on the agenda of their first face-to-face meeting since 2019 are the situation in Afghanistan, as well as Russia.
Today’s Foreign Affairs Council will focus on the situation in Myanmar, relations with Turkey and the EU’s new human rights sanctions regime.
NATO must remain capable of action at all times. Only in this way can it perform the task of ensuring security. For this, Allies must among other things have modern and operational armed forces that can be employed in a wide range of possible scenarios.
Collective defence is the core task of the North Atlantic Alliance.
NATO is making a valuable contribution to stabilising crisis regions and to fighting international terrorism.
