NATO: "military defense is a platform for involvement in the political dialogue with Russia."

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: "the main message is that NATO is adapting to the new and increasingly challenging security environment, to a more dangerous world and we are strengthening our collective defences in Europe but also work with our partners in the Middle East and North Africa, to help stabilize their countries. Because if they are more stable, we will be safer. "

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: "the United Kingdom's decision to leave the European Union changes the relationship between the two but does not change the position of the United Kingdom within NATO. The United Kingdom will continue to be strong and a committed ally within the Alliance, which is important since the United Kingdom is responsible for about a quarter of Defense spending among the European NATO allies. Therefore, it is important to continue to be a strong a lly within the Alliance and we will continue to develop our cooperation with the European Union, which is one of the main issues that we address in our Summit in Warsaw ".

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: "the European Union will not be weaker, the European Union will continue to be important for the whole of Europe. We face the same challenges and threats, but neither the European Union nor NATO have all the answers, all the tools, but together we can find a better answer to the challenges that we have in Europe today ".

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: "the message we want to convey is that we are ready to defend all our allies and that an attack on one of the allies is an attack on the whole Alliance. This is deterrence, defense, and is also important for the stability of Europe that NATO continue strong with regard to det errence and defense. NATO does not seek confrontation, we don't want a new cold war, we do not want a new arms race, so we continue to fight for a political dialogue with Russia, to reduce tensions and develop a better relationship ".

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: "all 28 NATO Allies agreed with the decision we have taken to reinforce our military presence in the eastern region of the Alliance, with more exercises. NATO is to participate in these exercises and I'm glad for that. But the 28 allies also agreed on the importance of continuing to strengthen political dialogue, cooperation with Russia. And Germany led both processes, has been on the front line. There is no contradiction between a strong defense and dialogue, by the way, we need the defense as a platform of engagement in the political dialogue with Russia. "

Jens Stoltenberg, NATO: "NATO cannot afford to choose between trying to solve the threats and challenges that come from the South or the challenges that appear from the East, we have to deal with both at the same time. In addition, the Alliance is to have a lot of work to stabilize the South. We have increased our presence in Turkey, a NATO ally has most affected by the crisis. The fighting in Iraq and Syria. We're still in Afghanistan, our greatest mission in history, giving training and military training so you can fight better against terrorism and can give stability to the country. All this in order to address the root of the problem of the large flow of immigrants that we have seen in Europe. We must help to stabilize these countries. NATO also has had a role in the crisis of refugees in Europe, with a fleet of boats in the Aegean Sea. In collaboration with the European Union we can reduce almost to zero the thousands of illegal crossings occur daily in the water s of the Aegean Sea ".
