The NATO Summit in Warsaw

The 27th NATO Summit—one of the most important political events of the year—will take place on July 8th and 9th at the National Stadium in Warsaw.  For this special occasion, U.S. President Barack Obama, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, and Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter will come to Poland.

The most significant issues for the upcoming NATO Summit are bolstering security in the Alliance’s Eastern and Southern regions, countering terrorism, and dealing effectively with migrant and border challenges.  Another strategic initiative of the Alliance is to set the path for new country memberships and to secure the stability and prosperity of NATO.  During his visit to Poland, President Barack Obama will also meet with Poland’s President Andrzej Duda.

Secretary of State John Kerry recently said in Brussels: “We all anticipate an even stronger NATO going forward because clarity is going to be important, and I think [for] everybody – the 22 nations in the E.U. part of NATO – that clarity is already defined.”
