NATO Deputy Secretary General addresses European Air and Missile Defence Conference
Addressing the European Air and Missile Defence Conference at the Paris Air Show on Monday (19 June 2023), NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană said that further developing air and missile defence in Europe was “a crucial part” of NATO’s work to bolster deterrence and defence. "Integrated Air and Missile Defence will allow us to maintain air superiority in a conflict and better protect our forces, people and critical infrastructure," he said.
NATO is actively working to enhance cooperation with industry and accelerate innovation in new technologies, Mr Geoană added, pointing to NATO’s Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA). "We are innovating together for our collective security, because security is a shared responsibility," he said.
