Britain's contribution to NATO

Yesterday, the Defence Secretary announced an increase in our contribution to NATO, boosting our collective defence in response to Putin’s barbaric invasion of Ukraine. 

  • Successive British governments have always been clear that our strength and security comes from our alliances, and NATO is at the heart of that. 
  • That is why the UK government is now making more forces available to NATO to counter future threats, including fighter aircraft, land forces, and maritime vessels.
  • The Prime Minister also met with Sweden and Finland’s leaders at the NATO summit in Madrid yesterday, reiterating Britain's staunch support for their membership aspirations which will permanently strengthen our defensive Alliance.  
  • These additional forces will strengthen NATO’s military command and allow the Alliance to plan for emerging threats.
