NATO Defence Ministers took decisions to further strengthen the deterrence and defence of the Alliance, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said on Wednesday following a meeting of NATO Defence Ministers, APA reports.

NATO Secretary General stressed that new guidance for NATO defence planning is approved: “With Russia's aggressive behaviour, the persistent threat of terrorism, and the challenges posed by China. It will drive the capability changes for the years to come. And ensure that our deterrence and defence remain strong and credible”.

Ministers also addressed ways to boost industrial capacity and replenish stockpiles of armaments and munitions, which are in greater demand than ever, given Allies' unprecedented support to Ukraine. Measures include the need to ramp up industrial capacity and work closely with industry, as well as reviewing NATO capability targets for munition stockpiles.
