NATO foreign ministers celebrated the 75th anniversary of their alliance today with flags, cake and marching bands, while its secretary general reminded the United States that it needed its allies more than ever as the Ukraine war enters its third year.


In his opening remarks, NATO secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg charged the alliance’s 32 member states to start planning for a greater role in coordinating military aid to Ukraine.



He also stressed that the u.s needs its European allies for its own security and not just the other way round, fueling fears that u.s could reduce its backing should Donald Trump, an outspoken NATO critic come to power in November’s presidential elections.


Meanwhile, German foreign minister Annalena Baerbock has said that NATO is a central anchor of security in Europe, insisting that Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine posed the greatest-ever threat to peace in Europe.
