Doorstep statement by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the start of the meetings of NATO Defence Ministers

Over the next two days, we will pave the way for Summit decisions.

We will agree on the deployment by rotation of four robust multinational battalions to Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland.

We will take decisions on a tailored presence for the south-east region, with a land element built around a multinational framework brigade in Romania.

We will also adopt a framework for NATO’s further adaptation to the challenges from the South.

We will look at ways to further improve the freedom of movement for NATO forces across Europe.
