NATO’s Secretary General welcomed Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada to NATO’s Summit in Brussels on Monday [14 June 2021]. The Secretary General praised Canada’s continued contributions to the Alliance and its shared security.

Today’s Summit decisions will aim to adapt ‘our Alliance for the future, under the NATO 2030 initiative’, the Secretary General said, including increased investment in deterrence and defence and ‘setting the gold standard’ when dealing with the security implications of climate change.  In this regard, he thanked Canada’s generous offer to host a NATO Centre of Excellence on Climate and Security.
