"What can NATO do about migration? Migration is a big challenge for the European Union and the European society. What is NATO as a military alliance has to contribute to that? And I think we have large military capabilities that could be applied alongside mainly the EU, which has the lead here, not supplant the EU, not to take over the job, but simply compliment the EU. And I think on Saturday you will hear some announcements of how NATO can get into that effort alongside the EU as a complimentary force," Doug E. Lute said at the 2016 NATO Future Leaders Summit in Warsaw.
According to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) about 200,000 people have arrived in Europe since the beginning of 2016.
