NATO leaders are expected to focus on Ukraine and Afghanistan as they begin the second day of a summit in Warsaw.

They are also scheduled to meet with the heads of European Union institutions.

 

Sixty-one delegations, including 18 presidents and 21 prime ministers, are attending the two-day NATO summit, which began on Friday.

 

Summit guests include U.S. President Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Francois Hollande, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

 

The host of the summit is Poland’s President Andrzej Duda, with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg chairing the meeting.

 

The second day of the summit will open with a session focusing on Afghanistan, with the participation of that country’s President Ashraf Ghani and Prime Minister Abdullah Abdullah. During the session, the alliance is expected to confirm its commitments to Afghanistan’s security. Participants are also expected to talk about continued military, financial and political support for that country and about the continuation of Operation Resolute Support.

 

Later in the day NATO leaders are expected to hold talks with the heads of the main EU institutions, European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker.

 

The summit will also feature a session on Ukraine attended by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. During the session the alliance is expected to decide to deepen its support for that country.

 

On the first day of the summit on Friday, the 28-nation Western defence alliance reaffirmed its decision to strengthen its eastern flank through the deployment of four multinational battalions to Poland and the Baltic states. (PAP)
