NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg marked the start of this week’s meeting of Defence Ministers on Wednesday (14 February 2018).
“I expect we will agree to establish two new Commands,” he said: “one for the Atlantic, and a support command for military mobility within Europe.”
Ministers are also expected to agree to begin planning for a NATO training mission in Iraq, in response to a request from the Iraqi government and the Global Coalition. Defence Ministers will also review progress on defence spending and burden-sharing, and discuss NATO-EU cooperation.
