Global Leaders Forum: H.E. Florence Parly, Minister for the Armed Forces of France

October 20, 2017 • 10:00 – 11:00 am EDT

Please join us on Friday, October 20 for a timely conversation with H.E. Florence Parly, Minister for the Armed Forces of France. Minister Parly will discuss the key findings of France's recently released "Strategic Review of Defense and National Security." As a critical defense partner to the United States and NATO ally, France is addressing an increasingly complex and diverse set of defense and security challenges which include transnational terrorism, cyber and information warfare, and an erosion of the international rules-based system, which are testing transatlantic security. Today, France and the United States have deployed forces to the Baltic Sea region to deter Russian aggression, to the Sahel in order to confront terrorism and instability in the region, and to the Middle East to defeat Daesh. Minister Parly will address France's greatest security challenges and how Paris is working with the Trump administration, NATO, and EU partners to counter these threats.
