Stoltenberg said in an interview with the newspaper, NATO was “in the midst of a very fundamental change” that would reflect the “long-term consequences” of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions.

“What we are seeing now is a new reality, a new normal for European security. Therefore, we have now asked our military commanders to provide the option of what we call a reset, a long-term adaptation to NATO.” It cited Stoltenberg as saying.

Stoltenberg, who recently said he would extend his term as head of the coalition by a year, also said in interviews that decisions on the reset would be made at the NATO summit in Madrid in June.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has caused Europe’s biggest refugee crisis since World War II and prompted Western countries to rethink their defense policies.
