The Warsaw and Brussels Summits have update the Harmel deterrence and defense strategy by 360° approach. However, an additional degree of action should be devoted to the internal dimension of the Alliance, by strengthening the Transatlantic Bond and recommitting  NATO members on the fundamental  values of the Alliance.

The Alliance has always shown to be able to prevail in the difficult passages the reasons of unity on those of the division, through research of a point of political balance between the various Allied sensibilities.
