At the recent Summit in Wales, all NATO Allies reiterated that the greatest responsibility of the Alliance is to protect and defend our territory and our populations against attack and that deterrence, based on an appropriate mix of nuclear, conventional, and missile defence capabilities, remains a core element of our overall strategy. Collectively, NATO as an Alliance discusses, on a regular basis, its nuclear policy, doctrine and capability including forward deployed nuclear forces. The stationing of nuclear weapons on the territory of a particular NATO member is governed by a bilateral agreement between the US and the host nation.
