Will NATO adapt to emerging global threats?

The world has changed significantly since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Has the intergovernmental military alliance of NATO—which was founded to counter the Soviet threat to the West—done enough to keep up with today's landscape of global threats? Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg joins Ian Bremmer on GZERO World to make the case for a modern, 21st century NATO. He'll discuss how the alliance is adapting to a variety of threats and challenges ranging from the rising influence of China to cyber warfare to the coronavirus pandemic.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: Russia’s continued threat

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is not naïve about the continued threat that Russia poses to his organization, which was founded shortly after WWII to counter Soviet aggression. But he also sees a silver lining in Putin's belligerent moves. "For the first time in many years, allies are investing more in defense. And all of this is very much triggered by Russia's behavior since 2014." Stoltenberg also believes that a critical step to confronting Russia will be to beat them on the cyber battlefield. His conversation with Ian Bremmer was part of the latest episode of GZERO World, which begins airing nationally in the US on public television November 13th. Check local listings.
