The UK will host the next NATO summit in Newport, Wales, between 4 and 5 September 2014. The Summit will focus on three broad themes: the end of combat operations in Afghanistan and NATO’s post-2014 role; collective defence and NATO’s response to the Russia-Ukraine crisis; the transatlantic relationship and the level of spending on defence by NATO members.

The meeting would be the largest gathering of international leaders ever to take place in Britain. President Obama, Chancellor Merkel, and President Hollande are expected to attend along with leaders and senior ministers from around 60 other countries.
