LIVE UPDATES: Biden arrives in Brussels for the NATO meeting after the G7 summit


President Biden will attend his first North Atlantic Compact Organization (NATO) personal summit on Monday.

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said Biden’s primary goal will be to send a clear message to both allies and adversaries that the US sees NATO as the foundation of our security. Biden will also send a message that NATO Article 5, which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all, is a “sacred guarantee” according to a White House statement.

BRIEF INFORMATION
