Stoltenberg launches NATO 2030 initiative
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg launched a new initiative on 8 June that aims to identify how the alliance should respond to growing threats over the next decade.
Speaking at a virtual Atlantic Council Front Page event, Stoltenberg said that NATO 2030 ‘is an opportunity to reflect on where we see our alliance 10 years from now, and how it will continue to keep up safe in a more uncertain world. As we look to 2030, we must continue to invest in our armed forces and military capabilities.’
A renewed emphasis on the political dimensions of the alliance was also discussed, with a focus on the security impacts of issues such as climate change, global arms control and public health.
NATO 2030 also proposes expanding the alliance’s relationships with key partners such as Australia, Japan, New Zealand and South Korea on space, cyber space and other areas.
