LONDON (Sputnik) — The Warsaw NATO Summit 2016 will take place on July 8 and 9.
"The Alliance is already reinforcing our collective defence. We have increased our military activities in the eastern part of our Alliance, with more planes in the air, more ships at sea and more exercises on the ground – and I expect our leaders to take further steps at our Summit in Warsaw," Vershbow said at the UK Parliament.
According to Vershbow, strengthening of NATO "deterrence and defence" will become another important theme for the discussion.
Moscow has repeatedly dismissed the Ukraine-related accusations leveled at it, warning that increased NATO activities near the country's borders could undermine regional and global stability.
