Background Discussion with Jens Stoltenberg

Berlin, 11 May 2017

One year after his last visit NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg returned to Körber-Foundation for a Background Discussion with members of the German Bundestag as well as representatives of several ministries and selected think tanks. The discussion focused on NATO’s relations with Russia, the war on terrorism and the future of the Common Security and Defense Policy of the EU. Furthermore, the Secretary General reiterated the importance of fair burden sharing within NATO and the need for increased efficiency and standardization.

Körber Foundation regularly invites a small circle of high-ranking actors within Berlin’s foreign policy community to its Political Background Discussions. As at the Bergedorf Round Tables, the discussions take place in a confidential setting, so as to enable a frank and constructive exchange.
