Joint Israeli and Palestian group at NATO HQ

For the first time ever, an Israeli and Palestinian group visited NATO HQ on 20 March. Representatives of the Joint Israeli-Palestine Center for Research and Information met with NATO Secretary General Lord Robertson and participated in a briefing programme on the Alliance's current policies and objectives, as well as its Mediterranean Dialogue.

The visit was organised by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung, a German government-related think-tank. The group went to the European Commission on 18 March and participated, on 19 March, in an international conference co-sponsored by the Hanns Seidel Stiftung in Brussels.
