On 6 and 7 February, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen participated in the Munich Security Conference, which annually brings together leading international figures to discuss security issues. The Secretary General delivered a speech focusing on the Alliance’s transformation.

Mr Rasmussen called on the North Atlantic alliance to turn itself “into a forum for consultation on worldwide security issues."

“Transforming NATO into a globally connected security institution is not a matter of choice – it is a matter of necessity. Globalisation has become an irreversible fact of life,” he said.
