Extraordinary NATO summit in Brussels

During the summit held in Brussels, before the rest of the leaders of the Alliance, including the president of United States, Joe Biden, the head of the Executive stressed the need to continue supporting Ukraine with military and humanitarian material so that it can exercise its right to legitimate defense.

Spanish sources reported that Sánchez considered that the collaboration between NATO and the European Union in this crisis it has been excellent and shows the way to continue to face future security threats.

In his opinion, NATO is showing its capacity for response and strength, but it must adapt to face the new security scenario that has opened up what he has called “Putin’s war”. That is a task that he said has already begun and that will continue to be addressed at the NATO summit that Madrid will host at the end of June.

In addition, as he did in his statements to journalists upon arrival at the summit, he appealed to China so that it has a constructive role in the conflict that allows peace to be achieved as soon as possible.

Sánchez also supported the proposal, at a difficult time like the present, to extend the mandate of the NATO Secretary General for one year, Jens Stoltenbergwith whom the Prime Minister had a brief conversation before the start of the summit sessions.
