North Atlantic Treaty Organization

Editor's note: US President Obama plans to meet with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in Washington about a half-hour from now, for a discussion on a range of security matters, with a likely focus on Islamic State, Russia's deployment in Syria, and ongoing tension in Eastern Europe and Ukraine. The meeting follows an announcement from the Pentagon last week that it will deploy an armored brigade in Eastern Europe to deter Russian aggression and shore up NATO's eastern frontier. It would be the first such deployment since the Cold War. We'll be watching for comment on that, as well as other meeting highlights. - Tricia
