NATO Bucharest Summit

Volume 472: debated on Monday 3 March 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the forthcoming NATO Bucharest summit. (190377)

The UK will look to the Bucharest summit to reaffirm NATO’s solidarity and commitment to its operations and missions—particularly in Afghanistan, where we need to build on the success NATO has achieved to date, and agree a comprehensive plan for the future. We will want it to maintain momentum on capability developments and force generation, both for current operations and more widely. Heads of State and Government will consider membership invitations for those countries currently participating in Membership Action Plans.
