"I certainly have concerns with respect to Russia", Scaparrotti told a press conference in Brussels on January 17 following a meeting of top North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defense officials.

This will be the first meeting since 2013 as former US President Barack Obama's administration imposed a ban on personal contacts between Supreme Allied Commander Europe of NATO Allied Command Operations and top Russian military commander.

"I think that, as an alliance, we are dominant".

"There are others where because of the modernization you noted, while we are dominant, we will not be in five years per se if we aren't adapting like this to include our structure but also within the nations, our capabilities, across the military functional areas as well as our domains". "This is one of the greatest transnational security challenges that we face", Pavel said at a press conference following the meetings.

NATO chiefs of defense addressed the challenging security environment on its southern flank, chairman of the NATO Military Committee Petr Pavel said Wednesday.

Representatives of the Ministry of Defence of Georgia have briefed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members over Georgia's military progress and reforms, as well as about the current security situation and threats in Georgia and the wider region.

On Georgia, Pavel said the defense officials "stressed continued support" to the Substantial NATO-Georgia Package to enhance the country's defense readiness.
