NATO and the EU continue to work closely together NATO representative, Oana Lunzescu. Specifically, speaking to ERT, he noted that “NATO and the EU continue to work very closely together and our cooperation has reached unprecedented interest in recent years, but of course NATO as a transatlantic alliance, South America and Europe do not work together, it remains the cornerstone of its defense Of EuropeAnswering a question about the fact that the EU wants to create a Defense Group. He added that “NATO has been calling on European allies to do more for many years. First of all in terms of defense spending, defense investment, investment in our own defenses of independence whether it is for NATO, the EU, the UN or for national defense.
Greece is leading the way by investing more than 2% of GDP in defense and the good news is that there are now ten NATO Allies spending 2% on defense».
Ms Lunjescu was also asked about Greece-France agreement, pointed out that “It is a national privilege to acquire military equipment. Defense procurement is a right and a privilege of every national government. What matters to NATO is this equipment that is interoperable, I can not work together and try at the same time. We therefore welcome cooperation between NATO allies on this issueHe said.
Regarding the purchase of the S400 from Turkey noted that “It is the responsibility and right of every Allied to acquire defense equipment, but what matters to NATO is whether it is interoperable or not.
Here, too, the Secretary-General and many Allies are very clear that the Russian S-400 system is not interoperable and cannot be integrated into NATO defense systems.».
At the same time, the Deputy Secretary General of NATO Public Diplomacy, Baiba Braze, stressed the need for citizens to understand the dangers of cyber attacks, but also how we should respond. In particular, he stated that “the useful part is to make our societies understand what the risks are and how to respond.
We all pay attention to what we drink or eat. We should treat all mobile devices in the same way, with what we do online.
This also applies to misinformation. Citizens should realize that they are responsible for what they share or receive and not just press the repost button in Turkey or just send a lot of Whatsapp messages to friends with something that is not real information in some cases.».
