NATO Chiefs of Defence and allies are holding a press conference after the Military Committee meeting in Brussels.
Existing issues and what the future hold for NATO - including the Russia-Ukraine crisis, and the looming 2022 Madrid Summit - are expected to be on the agenda, among other topics.
The meeting comes in the wake of Finland and Sweden applying for NATO membership on Wednesday.
Their applications faced opposition from Turkey over the support these countries have given to the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and Kurdish YPG militia, which are deemed terrorist organisations by Ankara.
