Never Alone, Together as One - NATO in 2020 (WITH SUBS)

22 Dec 2020 12:43

Synopsis

2020 was a difficult year for all of us. But amid the uncertainty, NATO provided stability and security – helping with COVID-19 relief efforts and carrying out our core task of keeping people safe. It’s not clear how much longer this pandemic will last. Like everyone, we’re looking forward to a new year and a fresh start. Whatever the new year brings, we will continue to stand in solidarity in response to the pandemic and support civilian efforts that help save lives. Our forces will remain vigilant and prepared to respond to any threat. And we will continue to adapt and evolve over a new decade of innovation and cooperation, and rise to meet the challenges of the future. Footage includes shots of NATO and Allied forces exercising together and supporting each other with COVID-19 relief efforts throughout the year, along with stock footage. Please note that some footage does not include typical COVID-19 precautions because filming took place before the pandemic.

Transcript

VOICEOVER Normally at this time of year we celebrate. We look back at our top moments, and toast our achievements. But this was a year where nothing felt normal. We made sacrifices. We kept our distance. We lost people. But even in our hardest moments, there was something we could still rely on… Friends, old and new, were there for us. We worked together. We helped each other. We stood shoulder-to-shoulder, to keep each other safe and to show that we will always be ready to defend our people. We worked with friends around the world. We worked together on innovations to keep us secure. We found new ways to stay connected. We continued to build a better future. Despite our losses, despite our distance, we grew closer together. 2020 has come to an end. It’s not clear how much longer this pandemic will last, but we’re all looking forward to a new year and a fresh start. No one knows what the new normal will be, but one thing’s for sure. We won’t face it alone. NEVER ALONE, TOGETHER AS ONE NATO
