One year before the Prague Summit

"NATO's new agenda: one year before the Summit" was the theme of an international conference organised in Sofia on 4 and 6 October, on the occasion of the Summit on the Contribution of New Democracies to Euro-Atlantic Security which was held in the Bulgarian capital the next day. The main topics of discussion were NATO enlargement, NATO's role in the Balkans, NATO-EU cooperation and more generally, security and stability in Europe in the 21st century. A roundtable on "NATO vs global terrorism" was also organised.

The conference was organised by the Bulgarian Euro-Atlantic Youth Club in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Bulgaria, the Atlantic Club of Bulgaria and NATO.
