NATO to Boost Troop Levels in Biggest Overhaul Since Cold War

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “NATO to Boost Troop Levels in Biggest Overhaul Since Cold War” – below is their description.

NATO leaders prepared to overhaul and boost the alliance’s defences in the face of Russian aggression in Europe, including establishing a new force model that would put about 300,000 troops on high alert to deal with any future threats.

US President Joe Biden said in Madrid on Wednesday that his country would set up a permanent headquarters in Poland for the Fifth Army Corps, maintain an additional rotational brigade of thousands of troops in Romania and bolster other deployments in the Baltic states. The US will also send two more F-35 squadrons to the UK and add to air-defense systems in Germany and Italy. That adds to 100,000 US troops already in Europe.
