NATO and EU Leaders Sign Joint Declaration
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker met in Brussels today (10 July 2018) to sign a new Joint Declaration on cooperation between NATO and the European Union. "Facing a complex and uncertain security environment, we must work together to keep our nations and citizens safe. And that is exactly what we are doing," said Mr. Stoltenberg.
The Declaration welcomes the EU's efforts on security and defence, which are complementary and not an alternative to NATO. "We… need to ensure the fullest possible involvement of non-EU Allies in our cooperation and avoid creating new barriers," said Secretary General Stoltenberg, recalling that after Brexit, 80% of defence spending in NATO will come from non-EU Allies.
President Tusk and President Juncker will attend two meetings at the NATO Summit, which starts in Brussels tomorrow (11 July).
