Hello from #NATO HQ! Defence Ministers meet today:

Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg briefed media on Tuesday (14 February 2017) on the agenda of this week’s meetings of NATO Defence Ministers. On Wednesday and Thursday, Ministers will address the Alliance’s response to a more challenging world. “We will stress the importance of fair burden-sharing and higher defence spending,” said Mr. Stoltenberg. He welcomed that defence spending among European Allies and Canada has increased by 3.8% in real terms in 2016, higher than expected. Ministers will also focus on the fight against terrorism, and threats stemming from the Middle East and North Africa.
