“For 75 years, the NATO Alliance has been guided by our shared commitment to defending human rights, democracy, and freedom. As our adversaries attempt to undermine our security, we must continue to stand together to counter this threat,” said Klobuchar. “This bipartisan meeting was a critical opportunity to discuss a range of important issues with Alliance leaders, from bolstering our cooperation in the Baltic Sea to supporting the Ukrainian people in their fight for freedom. We must remain steadfast in strengthening our security relationships to ensure democracy prevails in Europe and beyond.”

In addition to today’s meeting, Senator Klobuchar met with New Zealand Prime Minister Christopher Luxon and Norwegian Foreign Minister Espen Barth Eide.
