On Thursday, 6 October, Netherlands Atlantic Youth organized part two of the series on “NATO from Wales to Warsaw: Implementation of the Readiness Action Plan”. This program dealt with 'Assurance'.
Speaker at this event at the Ministry of Defence, was NATO's Assistant Secretary General for Operations Patrick Turner.
On 4 July, we discussed the Adaptation aspects of the Readiness Action Plan with general Kees Matthijssen, focusing on how to strengthen the Alliance from a military point of view. This time more attention was paid to the political side of NATO, as strength comes not only from hard power, but also from unity and solidarity, as well as the ability to make highly political decisions swiftly.
