The Warsaw Summit, which will take place on 8-9 July 2016, will be a key milestone for the Alliance. Allied leaders will take the next steps in ensuring the Alliance’s collective defence. Strengthening and modernising NATO’s defence and deterrence posture will be at the heart of the Summit. Allies will also assess the long-term implications of the crisis on NATO’s relations with Russia and consider the next steps.

FIRST DAY COVER

As Allies move towards the Summit, NATO is improving its intelligence and early warning, and the integration of its forces. The Alliance is also enhancing its cyber defences, and stepping up its cooperation with the European Union and partners like Sweden and Finland.  At the Warsaw Summit, Allies will also take further decisions on an enhanced multinational forward presence in the eastern part of the Alliance.




The logo of the Summit depicts the Mermaid of Warsaw – the 600 year old emblem of the Polish capital. This will be the 27th NATO Summit since the Alliance was created in 1949. The last Summit meeting took place in Wales in the United Kingdom in September 2014.
