Madrid, May 29 (EFE).- Spain’s prime minister Pedro Sanchez met with Nato’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Sunday to discuss preparations for the Alliance’s next summit, which will be held in Madrid on June 29 and 30.
“Work weekend with Jens Stoltenberg prior to the commemoration of the 40th anniversary of Spain’s accession to Nato. Ready to host the next Nato summit, in a historic moment for the Alliance in defense of peace and security,” Sanchez tweeted.
Sanchez and Stoltenberg’s meeting coincides with Spain’s 40th anniversary since joining the Defense Alliance, which will be commemorated on Monday in a ceremony presided by Spain’s king Felipe VI.
The leaders met in Quintos de Mora, a state estate in the Toledo town of Los Yébenes in central Spain.
At Nato’s summit in June, allies plan to renew the organization’s strategic concept for the next decade at a time marked by the challenge of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. EFE
