NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg spoke to Andrea Mitchell from NBC at the start of the NATO Public Forum in Vilnius on Tuesday (11 July 2023).

The Secretary General stressed that “this Summit is already historic before it has started, because Sweden will become a full-fledged member of this Alliance. That's good for Sweden, this is good for Türkiye, for the whole of NATO, and it's also good for the Baltic region.” Mr. Stoltenberg said he was confident that leaders would make “strong and united decisions on Ukraine, both to sustain and step up our support. I'm also confident that on the membership issue, allies will reaffirm that Ukraine will become a member.”
