There is no imminent military threat to NATO but the Alliance never takes peace for granted, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at the Munich Security Conference on Saturday (17 February 2024). "The world has become more dangerous, but NATO has become stronger," said Mr Stoltenberg, citing record increases in Allied defence spending and ammunition production. On Ukraine, Mr Stoltenberg welcomed that European NATO Allies and Canada are stepping up aid to Kyiv, and warned that there is a "vital and urgent need for the US to decide on a package for Ukraine".
