Leaders of the alliance are set to discuss their collective readiness, as well as the future of NATO's mission in Afghanistan and combating terrorism.

Macedonian voters and the Greek parliament still must sign off on that deal, which could also dissipate any Greek objections to the Skopje government's ambition to join the European Union. Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan signaled that they were prepared for the debate of the orthodoxy of the western military alliance's non-binding spending targets.

"The (Latvian mission) has become a symbol of strength that reminds us that only the commitment and the unity of the alliance will deter Russian adventurism", said Jayson Derow, a research analyst at the NATO Association of Canada.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is expected to commit Canada to spend several more years leading a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation battle group in Latvia - news that will come Tuesday on the eve of the alliance's summit in Brussels, where leaders will be braced for a showdown with U.S. President Donald Trump over military spending.

The first, Carl von Ossietzky, died of tuberculosis in Germany in 1938 while jailed for opposing Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime. Liu's friends said her psychological condition had steadily deteriorated, particularly since the death of her husband.

The Canadian troops will be deployed in the Baghdad region starting in the fall of 2018 to help "Iraq build a more effective national security structure and improve training for Iraqi security forces", said a government statement on Wednesday.

And while Trudeau acknowledged the target as a legitimate way of measuring the commitment of alliance members, he said he considers tangible and consistent resources and leadership, which Canada continues to demonstrate, to be more important. "You can try and be a bean counter and look at exactly how much this and how much money that, but the fundamental question is: is what you're doing actually making a difference?" Britain's addition will beef up efforts that are already training some 16,000 troops.

A new Cyber Operations Center at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe in Mons, Belgium, will also be inaugurated. Germany leads a similar force in Lithuania, Britain leads one in Estonia and the USA leads in Poland. With all, Trump believes the U.S.is getting "ripped off" in an unfair marketplace.

"Our first - and really our only consideration - was what served the Canadian national interest, what served Canadians, what was appropriate to do for Canada given our role in the world and the very great interest we, as Canadians, have in a functioning, rules-based global order", Freeland said. "Two world wars and a Cold War taught us that we are stronger together than apart", he said, adding that the USA troop presence in Europe allows Washington to project military power into Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.
