NATO Foreign Ministers are meeting on Thursday (4 April 2019) in Washington D.C. to mark the Alliance’s seventieth anniversary and address key security challenges. Ministers will discuss NATO’s relations with Russia, progress in the fight against terrorism, and efforts to ensure fairer burden sharing in the Alliance.

They are also expected to approve a new package of measures to enhance security in the Black Sea region, and strengthen NATO’s support to partners Georgia and Ukraine. “On this day 70 years ago, NATO’s founding treaty was signed in this great city and since then NATO has preserved peace and safeguarded freedom,” said Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
