Accredited media representatives can work in the press area of NATO Headquarters on the days of the Ministerial meeting, and access all public areas. The opening hours of the press area will be communicated in the media programme. Accredited journalists can attend ministers’ doorsteps and the press conferences of the NATO Secretary General.

These events will also be streamed live on the NATO website.

National briefings may also take place at NATO Headquarters. Please contact national delegations at NATO for details about their plans.


A few elements of the Meeting of NATO Foreign Affairs Ministers will be accessible only to a pool of visual journalists. Details on pooled events and on the distribution of pool cards will be available in the media programme, a few days before the event.

If you accept a NATO pool position, you must share immediately all information and material collected while in the pool with any accredited media that requests it, at no charge and with no restriction on the use of the material for news purposes.

Media organisations that want pooled images should first contact the wire service / photo agency of which they are a client. Media representatives and news organisations must identify that it is pooled material every time it is used. Pooled material can only be used for legitimate news purposes and cannot be sold.


NATO will provide broadcast-quality video in real time on EBU World feed or to EBU News Exchange.

NATO photographers and videographers will provide video clips and photos of all public events during the ministerial meeting. Photos can be downloaded from the NATO website. The video files will be available for free download from the NATO Multimedia Portal.
