Secretary Austin, Lloyd,
It’s great to have you back in NATO. Welcome to NATO.
And it’s great to see you such short time after we met in Washington.

And thank you for your leadership.
Thank you for the strong US commitment to NATO.
And I look forward to sit down with you and the other ministers here at the NATO Defence Ministerial Meeting, to make important decisions on the future of our Alliance.
