NATO: The enduring alliance 2016
"On July 8th and 9th 2016, the Summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation will take place in Warsaw. This meeting of Alliance heads of state and government – partners for security within the Alliance – is taking place at a key moment for NATO, due to changes in the international arena, and on NATO’s eastern, north-eastern and southern flanks. As the fundamental political and military organisation of free democratic states, the Alliance is confronted today with essential threats to the security of the Euro-Atlantic area, and in particular NATO member states. A predominant aim of the Summit shall be to define the direction of action needed to adjust NATO to new security- related challenges, in particular the protection of its members from universal threats emerging in many directions."
