NATO to massively increase high-readinees forces to 300,000

MADRID, 28 June 2022, (TON): Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said “NATO will increase the number of its forces at high readiness massively to over 300,000.”

He told reporters ahead of a NATO summit in Madrid later this week in Madrid “we will transform the NATO response force and increase the number of our high readiness forces to well over 300,000.”

NATO’s quick reaction force, the NATO response force, so far has some 40,000 troops.

At the Madrid summit, NATO will also change its language on Russia that in the alliance’s last strategy from 2010 was still described as a strategic partner.
