Kerry and Stoltenberg get ready for the European Council


On Monday 27 June 2016, the US Secretary of State, John Kerry, and the NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg, met at Brussels. The two men have put the finishing touches to the final details of the Nato Summit that will take place on 8 and 9 July at Warsaw and more importantly, the European Council Summit on 29 June.

Indeed, President Obama ensured that Mr Stoltenberg was invited to the European Council, which will debate the reactions to Brexit. Washington is seeking to avoid at all costs that the UK’s departure from the European Union triggers its exit from Nato.

“Nato has become even more important as a platform for cooperation between Europe and North America but also for cooperation on defense and security between Nato’s European member states. Nato-EU cooperation has always been important, but it is even more important today after the decision taken by the United Kingdom.” So declared Jens Stoltenberg.
