Secretary General’s Annual Report: Alliance adapts to changed security environment
The year 2014 was a ‘black year’ for European security but NATO has been able to respond to the changing environment, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said during the launch of his Annual Report Friday (30 January, 2015). Mr Stoltenberg said violent extremism close to NATO’s southern borders is fuelling terrorism in Allied countries, and that Russia’s actions have destabilized eastern Ukraine. “This Annual Report demonstrates that we are adapting to deal with these changes, and to keep NATO strong,” said Mr Stoltenberg. He added that the Readiness Action Plan, agreed at the Wales summit, is being turned into reality: “This will be the biggest reinforcement of our collective defence since the end of the Cold War.”
