Keynote speech


by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the ''NATO Talk around the Brandenburg Tor'' Conference


(As delivered)

So president Schmidt, congratulations with the strong election result and I was never able to obtain anything like that when I did election campaigns in Norway.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is really a great pleasure to see you all and to be here in Berlin today and to be able to participate in this very important forum. And I really feel that I’m among friends of NATO. 

Twenty-nine years ago – almost to the day – a peaceful revolution brought down the Berlin Wall.

And the Brandenburger Tor ceased to be a Cold War symbol of division.

Chief of Polish diplomacy and NATO Secretary General discussed security issues in Brussels today

“We believe that the measures we are taking with respect to the possible stationing of US troops in Poland in a larger capacity help to strengthen the security of our country, of the entire region and of the entire North Atlantic Alliance,” underscored Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Monday.
