ANTALYA, May 14. /TASS/. NATO plans to increase its military presence in the eastern part of the alliance, the organization’s Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said at the closing press conference following the meetings of NATO foreign ministers in Antalya, Turkey, on Thursday.
"We are constantly discussing the adaptation of the alliance. And we have to always be able to fulfill our main responsibility and that is to defend and protect all our allies against any threat. NATO is the strongest military alliance in the world and we are going to keep NATO strong by adapting NATO," Stoltenberg said.
The main focus of the organization now is to implement the decisions that have already been made. "That is to double the size of the NATO response force and to establish this new very high readiness Spearhead Force," he said.
"Today Turkey said that they were going to be one of the seven lead nations for this high readiness force and continue to have increased military presence in the eastern part of the alliance," he said.
There will be more air policing, more naval presence and also more exercises, and the establishment of the new NATO command units in the Baltic states, Poland, Bulgaria and Romania.
