Italian defence minister urges reform within NATO

Rome, February 5 - Member states of the European Union must make themselves heard within NATO as part of a renewed political commitment to the defence organization, Italian Defence Minister Giampaolo Di Paola said Tuesday. "So, in the future, Europeans must make their voices heard, they have to feel a renewed political commitment," Di Paola told the 58th General Assembly of the Atlantic Treaty Association (ATA) at the NATO defence college in Rome. "We should not be afraid of a process of balancing and re-balancing the alliance". ATA General Assembly meetings are organized every year in a different member country. The most recent meetings were held in Ottawa, Canada (2007), Berlin, Germany (2008), Kiev, Ukraine (2009), and Tirana, Albania (2011).
