At the NATO summit, the Alliance will officially announce that Russia is no longer its partner but a threat to peace and stability.
On June 29-30, the scheduled NATO summit will be held in Madrid. As part of the new concept of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg voiced strategic issues for discussion at the upcoming summit. In particular, the security challenges against the backdrop of Russian aggression and their assessment, as well as the tasks of the Alliance to resist new threats, will be discussed.
The program of work will include not only internal consultations among NATO members but also cooperation with external partners, relevant organizations, and experts.
The role of Russia in consultations between NATO and allies will henceforth be viewed in terms of threat, not partnership.
