"NATO’s Warsaw summit in July is shaping up to be one of the most consequential in the alliance’s history, NATO Deputy Secretary General Alexander Vershbow said on June 3 while noting the growing challenges on Europe’s southern and eastern flanks.
“We face one of the most challenging security environments in decades,” Vershbow said. “We have to step up and meet challenges from a revanchist Russia...and at the same time we have to deal with the arc of crisis that spans the entire Middle East and North Africa region.”
“Failure is not an option as we go into the Warsaw summit,” he added."
