Video summary of the ALDE Seminar on "Enlargement of NATO - Opportunities for European Security and Defence Policy"
Event date: 01/04/08 09:00
Location: Room ASP 5G1, European Parliament, Brussels
On the eve of the important NATO Bucharest Summit, Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) group in the European Parliament would like to discuss the changes this event will bring to the European security environment.
The scale and scope of current security threats require a co-operative NATO - EU relationship that maximises the assets of both organisations and puts an end to institutional bickering. A constructive relationship between NATO and EU is a key component of a vibrant transatlantic relationship.
ALDE sees European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP) and NATO policy as complimentary without one being subservient to the other. Enlargement of NATO offers an additional incentive to further intensify EU - NATO relationship and enhance the dialogue among decision makers in Europe and beyond.
In this context on the 1st of April 2008 in the European Parliament in Brussels, ALDE is organising a seminar "Enlargement of NATO- opportunities for European Security and Defence policy". Among others participants of the seminar will discuss the agenda of the forthcoming Bucharest Summit, enlargement perspectives for NATO and impact it will have on Western Balkans, South Caucasus and by that the European Union.
