The President of the United States Barack Obama will offer the closer partnership with EU to the Alliance during NATO Summit in Warsaw on July 8-9.
The partnership will include issues of the cyber security, coordination of the military trainings and patrolling of the Central part of the Mediterranean Sea. The New York Times reports this citing the sources in President's Administration.
Obama may make such an offer due to Brexit, which can negatively affect the security of Europe and cause difficulties for NATO. According to the newspaper's source, the closer partnership between NATO and EU was a plan of the US for a long time, but the UK exit from EU makes this issue even more efficient.
