At the Riga Public Diplomacy Conference on Tuesday 30 November 2021, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg shared his ideas on NATO’s next Strategic Concept.

Speech by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the event: NATO's outlook towards 2030 and beyond, organized by the Latvian Institute of International Affairs in co-operation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Latvia and the NATO Public Diplomacy Division

The new document, which NATO leaders will endorse at the Madrid Summit in June 2022, will set out how NATO will deal with a more unpredictable and competitive world. In his speech, Mr. Stoltenberg outlined five elements that should be at the heart of the next Strategic Concept:

  • protecting our values,
  • reinforcing our military power,
  • strengthening our societies,
  • taking a global outlook, and
  • building NATO as the institutional link between Europe and North America.
