NATO should continue to be able to adapt to new challenges and focus on the key task of collective defense, as this will determine the Alliance's future success, Lithuania's Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius says.

"The NATO Enhanced Forward Presence deployed in the Baltic states and Poland will reach its full operational capability in summer thus strengthen the eastern part of NATO. This does not mean that the process will end. The adaptation of the Alliance must continue as set out in the Warsaw Summit decisions," Linkevicius said at the global security forum GLOBSEC held in Bratislava on May 26-27.

According to the press release circulated by the Foreign Ministry, the minister believes that the main tasks in the process are rapid and unrestricted movement of Allies’ troops and the force structure review needed for the structure to meet current threats and ensure a smooth decision-making process in the Alliance.
