“Strong transatlantic ties within NATO are most important for our nations' security within and beyond NATO, said Badia. “With Germany contributing to deterrence by a wide range of capabilities, it goes without saying that an intensive collaboration is required to coherently develop policy, capabilities, doctrine etc. within this pillar of deterrence.”
