Secretary General: Summit will forge a stronger NATO for a more complex world
The NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen stressed on Thursday (4 September 2014) that the Wales summit will forge a stronger NATO for a more complex and chaotic world, during an address to the Atlantic Council of the United States "Future Leaders Summit" in Newport, Wales, ahead of the start of the leader's gathering.
"We see the greatest number of crises since the end of the Cold War, emerging at the same time in different places on our periphery. A climate of chaos beyond our borders which could have direct implications for us at home. From criminal regimes and violent extremists to crippling cyber attacks. It is for all these reasons that the Wales Summit is a critical Summit. At a critical time. And it is why today and tomorrow, we will forge a stronger NATO for a more complex and chaotic world", said Mr. Fogh Rasmussen, ahead of the start of the Wales summit.
