Report from the meeting of NATO Ministers of Defence held in Brussels, 26-27 October 2016.
The two days of talks noted progress in creating four NATO battalions in the Baltic States and Poland, closer cooperation with the European Union and training for Iraqi officers.
'Over the past two days, we assessed the various challenges confronting NATO', said Secretary General Stoltenberg. 'We took stock of our progress since the Warsaw Summit – and we mapped out the road ahead. We are as united as ever in our determination to protect our citizens'.
Mr Stoltenberg told the BBC that NATO was not seeking confrontation with Russia and did not want another Cold War.
