During the ATA Conference “NATO-EU Cooperation after the Warsaw Summit: Countering Hybrid Warfare

Hybrid warfare is threatening the transatlantic community at an unprecedented speed.

At a conference on how to advance EU-NATO cooperation on hybrid warfare, Michael Gahler, Member of European Parliament and spokesperson on security on defence of the EPP Group, called on all member states to work together: “I deeply hope that this time member states will convince us that they are able and willing to overcoming roadblocks of EU – NATO cooperation and implement existing decisions and keep their promises.”
