NATO Secretary General welcomes next step towards new NATO Headquarters

I welcome the awarding, by the Belgian government, of the contract to build a new NATO Headquarters. When NATO moved into the current Headquarters in 1967, it had only 15 members; today, there are 28 Allies, with more countries aspiring to join.

The new Headquarters, which is planned to be complete by 2015, will be of a sufficient size and flexibility for the new NATO.  It will also use the latest environmental technologies, to be as sustainable and affordable as possible in its operation.

I thank Belgium for providing the land on which the new premises will be built, and for the professionalism with which it has managed this important project.
