The North Atlantic Alliance announced the change of its military strategy for the first time over years. The changes are the necessity to resist the increasing nuclear threat from the Russian Federation. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that in the interview with Welt am Sonntag.
According to the report, the new military strategy of the Alliance will be approved by the experts on the coming week.
"It is about going on to fully demonstrate the defensive capability and to be able to provide stability. Partially, this requires new military concepts," Stoltenberg said.
The NATO Secretary-General outlined that the new challenges more often appear at the east and south of Europe.
As we reported earlier, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg stated that the alliance would not place then nuclear missiles and urged Russia to observe the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty.
He also noted that NATO will also assume the necessary steps for the provision of reliable and efficient deterrence.
NATO Secretary-General urged Russia to return to the observation of the INF Treaty, from which U.S. President Donald Trump is going to withdraw.
