EU-NATO relations: debate with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg today

EU-NATO cooperation on common challenges such as security, defence, cyber-warfare or migration will be debated by Foreign Affairs and Defence MEPs with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday at 15.00.

Back in July 2016 the Presidents of the European Council and the European Commission, Donald Tusk and Jean-Claude Juncker respectively, and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg signed a joint declaration on EU-NATO cooperation. It enshrines deeper relations between the two organisations on cybersecurity, migration, strategic communication, resilience, situational awareness and response to hybrid threats.

The European Parliament backed closer relations between the EU and NATO in its recent resolutions on the European Defence Union and the implementation of Common foreign and security policy.

The meeting will be web-streamed. You can follow the debate via EP Live.
