clear CIAO Focus, November 2002: NATO Summit in Prague
The next round of NATO enlargement is to be agreed upon at the NATO Summit in Prague, November 21-212. Lord Robertson, the NATO General Secretary, has called the summit "a chance to redefine Nato for the 21st century." Terrorism and other "asymmetric" threats are high on the priority list as are links to non-NATO countries, including Ukraine and the countries of Central Asian and the Caucasus. Those countries expected to receive the invitation at the summit in Prague are Slovenia, Slovakia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Bulgaria, and Romania.
