The Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will fly Thursday afternoon to Poland to participate for the first time since his election to the summit of member countries of NATO (NATO), which will begin tomorrow in Warsaw .
The head of the Government of Canada hosted by the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg. He thanked Canada earlier this week to have announced that he would contribute to the NATO military sending in Eastern Europe alongside the US, UK and Germany.
It is expected that Prime Minister Trudeau said that these soldiers will be deployed in Latvia. This will be the largest Canadian military involvement in Europe since the Cold War.
The NATO force deployed in the region aims to reassure the European countries of the East face of bellicose threats from Russia.
Last week, during his speech in the House of Commons in Ottawa, the president of the United States, Barack Obama, has called on Canada to do more to NATO.
After taking part in the NATO summit, Justin Trudeau will travel successively to Ukraine and the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, Poland.
