Chicago - H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Foreign Minister, will lead the UAE delegation to the talks with NATO leaders as part of the NATO's 25th summit in Chicago, USA, on Sunday.
Sheikh Abdullah will join heads of state and leaders from 60 participating countries. The two-day summit will be the largest since the NATO establishment 60 years ago.
At the Chicago Summit, 20-21 May 2012, NATO will drive forward key principles and policies that will shape the Alliance of 2020 and beyond. It will deliver on decisions taken at the Lisbon Summit in November 2010, turning them into concrete programmes and initiatives.
The summit will principally focus on three main themes: the Alliance's commitment to Afghanistan through transition and beyond; ensuring the Alliance has the capabilities it needs to defend its population and territory and to deal with the challenges of the 21st century; and strengthening NATO's network of partners across the globe. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
