Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg met with President Edgars Rinkēvičs in Riga on Tuesday (11 June 2024), praising Latvia for its many contributions as a NATO Ally over 20 years. He pointed to Latvia’s hosting of a Canadian-led battlegroup, its contributions to missions in Kosovo and Iraq, its strong support to Ukraine, and its defence investment - over 2% of GDP - as examples of Latvia’s commitment. Later on Tuesday, Mr Stoltenberg will participate in the B9 Summit, co-hosted by the Presidents of Latvia, Poland and Romania.
