In attending the NATO Defence Ministers meeting, Defence Minister Harjit S. Sajjan said “As a NATO enhanced Forward Presence Framework Nation, Canada has taken a leadership role within the Alliance. Through our new Defence Policy Strong, Secure, Engaged, we will continue to maintain our strong commitment to NATO as we work towards global peace, stability, and security. As a founding member of the Alliance, we are committed to transatlantic unity and value the unique bond between North America and Europe, based on democracy, individual liberty, and the rule of law. This bond was further solidified on June 5, when Montenegro became the 29th member nation to join the Alliance. Montenegro is a welcome addition and will be a valuable contributor to international peace.”
