“Europe is going to “natonize”, that will be our response to (Vladimir) Putin,” Biden said at the IFEMA-Madrid fairgrounds, where the Summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization began on Wednesday.

Speaking to the media during his interview with the secretary general of the alliance, Jens Stoltenberg, the US president praised the imminent accession of Sweden and Finland into the bloc, “a show of unity.”

He reiterated Washington’s decision to raise the number of destroyers stationed at the Rota naval base (southern Spain) from four to six, as they are fundamental pieces of NATO’s anti-missile system.

He announced that he will install a special headquarters in Poland to reinforce the eastern flank of the alliance, and will strengthen his support for the United Kingdom, as well as for Italy and Germany.

For his part, Stoltenberg valued the leadership of the United States in NATO and welcomed the increase in its future budget, to increase by another 350 million dollars, with a two-percent rise in military spending by country.

Both leaders praised the work of Spain as host of the event and its greater commitment to NATO.
