I am happy to announce that the next Summit of Allied leaders will take place on 3-4 December 2019 in London to mark NATO’s 70th anniversary. I discussed preparations for the event with Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street last week (14 May) and I thanked the United Kingdom for agreeing to host the event.

In 1949, the United Kingdom was one of NATO’s twelve founding members.  London was the home of our first headquarters, so it is a fitting venue for NATO Heads of State and Government to plan the Alliance’s future.  Together we will address current and emerging security challenges and how NATO continues to invest and adapt to ensure it will remain a pillar of stability in the years ahead.

I look forward to a successful Summit.
