NATO Secretary General joins Summit for Democracy
On Thursday (9 December 2021), NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg joined a virtual meeting of world leaders, hosted by the United States, to address the challenges and opportunities facing democracies.
President Biden convened the Summit for Democracy, and invited a diverse group of leaders from government, civil society, and the private sector to participate. They will focus on three themes: strengthening democracy and countering authoritarianism, fighting corruption, and promoting respect for human rights. NATO was founded in 1949 on the principles of democracy, individual liberty, and the rule of law, and the Alliance has been defending those values for more than seven decades.
