On September 12, 2001, NATO invoked Article 5, the mutual defense clause of its founding treaty, for the first and only time in its history. As a result, NATO deployed allied troops to fight alongside Americans in Afghanistan, a mission that continues today. Commemorating the 70th anniversary of the treaty’s signing, former U.S. Ambassador to NATO R. Nicholas Burns and former Deputy Secretary General of NATO Alexander Vershbow will discuss the current state of NATO and shed some light on the Alliance’s uncertain future.
