On Wednesday, April 3, CEPA marked the grand opening of its new Washington headquarters by hosting a Ministerial Forum in celebration of NATO's 70th Anniversary. Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz, Montenegrin Foreign Minister Srdjan Darmanović, U.S. Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur, Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčák, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius, Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor-Viorel Meleşcanu, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy, Czech Foreign Minister Tomáš Petříček, Latvian Foreign Minister Edgars Rinkēvičs, and others including CEPA Pershing Chair LTG (Ret.) Ben Hodges.

NATO has served as the foundation for Western security for the last seven decades. There is much to commemorate and reflect on. The 70th anniversary also provided a unique opportunity to look ahead and consider what lies in store for the Alliance.

Today, NATO must confront issues of both external pressures and internal cohesion. Both Russia and China have emerged as active players in the transatlantic security space. Russia continues its revisionist behavior with on-going maneuvers around the Sea of Azov, its expansion of new missile capabilities, and its use of toxic disinformation in the West. Additionally, NATO members face questions on matters of political cohesion, military readiness, energy security, cybersecurity, and corruption, among many others.
