British Prime Minister David Cameron listens to U.S. President Barack Obama at NATO’s 2014 summit in Newport, Wales

NATO balances east and south

  • NATO has reached a consensus on reinforcing its eastern flank
  • Thus reassured, the alliance eastern members are now willing to deploy assets south
  • The EU is becoming an important partner for NATO but lacks a convincing strategy
  • Brexit will speed Germany’s rise as the U.S.’s main security partner in Europe

This week in Warsaw, NATO will make deterring Russia its main priority for the first time since the end of the Cold War. Yet paying attention to the east cannot mean dropping NATO’s guard in the south. The challenge after the Warsaw summit will be to juggle these two strategic directions. To strike the right balance, NATO will have to cooperate more closely with the European Union. Brexit complicates this task.
