End of year message from NATO Secretary General, Lord Robertson
2002 has been a momentous year for NATO. A year in which the Alliance transformed to deal with the dramatically different security risks and threats of the 21st century. A year in which NATO invited seven countries to join the Alliance, launched a new partnership with Russia, and engaged all its partners into closer cooperation. And a year in which NATO’s continuing strong commitment to peace, stability and cooperation in the Balkans started to show very concrete results.
