France’s main priority at NATO’s July 2016 summit in Warsaw is to preserve a balanced and flexible alliance that is able to respond to different threats along its Eastern and Southern borders. France considers that NATO cannot afford to choose between Europe’s different neighborhoods and acts as an alliance swing state, along with the United States, the UK, and Germany, by playing a decisive role in managing this balance.
