Following the 48th G7 Summit in Germany that took place on June 26-28, 2022, the Heads of State and Government of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) member countries and key partners assembled in Madrid, Spain for the 32nd NATO Summit 2022. The NATO Summit was a two-day affair from June 29-30, 2022.
The 32nd NATO Summit, termed as a historic moment for the Transatlantic Alliance by The White House came at an extremely crucial time when war had returned to Europe after decades in the form of the Russia-Ukraine conflict that started back in late February this year.
Before this Summit, two extraordinary Summits were held on February 25, 2022 (virtual) and March 24, 2022 (Belgium) in response to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. The Summit in Madrid also marked the 40th Anniversary of Spain’s accession to NATO.
