Follow the latest from NATO via RSS & Podcast

NATO news via RSS

What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Syndication) is an easy way to be informed of new stories and content posted on your favourite Web sites. Rather than having to visit many sites to find out if there are new items posted, special news readers shows it all to you in one screen. You will see the title of the recent content posted with a link to the full content on the particular Web site.

How do I use it?

Special RSS news readers, called 'news aggregators' are required for you to be able to use RSS feeds. Some Web browsers also have built-in RSS support. We do not endorse a particular reader or browser; you can locate RSS readers via web search engines. There are also many reviews of the various news aggregators available.

Once you have installed a news reader, you can subscribe to the NATO RSS feed:

  • Copy and paste the link of the NATO RSS feed into your news reader

Using NATO RSS feeds on your site

We encourage the use of NATO RSS feeds as part of a website, subject to our Disclaimer.

However, we do require that the proper format and attribution is used when NATO content appears. The attribution text should read "NATO News" or "From NATO" as appropriate. You may not use the NATO logo without specific permission.
