Conclusion of the NATO summit: the war in Ukraine at the heart of the concerns

MADRID — A historic summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) leaders will conclude on Thursday as the main concern is Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau met with other NATO leaders in Madrid, Spain on Wednesday to approve a new strategic concept that will define the alliance’s defense plans for the next decade.

On Thursday, leaders will discuss plans to protect the alliance’s southern flank, particularly against the threat of terrorism.

The NATO meeting followed a G7 summit in Germany’s Bavarian Alps, where leaders pledged support for Ukraine.

Previously, the Prime Minister was in Kigali, Rwanda, to attend a meeting of Commonwealth Heads of Government whose countries are feeling the global repercussions of the war in Ukraine, including the energy crisis and food insecurity.

After the NATO summit, Justin Trudeau will be hosted by Spanish President Pedro Sanchez for a short visit before returning to Canada.
