NATO summit — Swedish, Norwegian and Estonian PMs — G7 flop

Coming to you from the NATO summit in Madrid, our POLITICO team analyzes a packed week in international diplomacy and what it means for Europe and its security. We also hear from the prime ministers of Sweden, Norway and Estonia.

Sarah Wheaton hosts this week’s episode, which kicks off with a discussion with our team at the NATO summit in Madrid — Lili Bayer, David M. Herszenhorn, Paul McLeary and Hans von der Burchard. They analyze what was behind the main decisions and point to some of the uncertainties that remain. They also discuss the missed opportunities at the G7 summit in Germany earlier in the week, and how German Chancellor Olaf Scholz performed as host of his first major international gathering.

Our special guests in this episode include Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson on her country’s path to joining NATO and Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre on changes to his region’s security situation. We also talk to Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, who shares her view on the summit’s outcomes.
