NATO Secretary General Welcomes Turkey’s Announcement On Missile Defence


By NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen

I welcome Turkey’s announcement to host a radar which will be an important element of NATO’s missile defence capability, which was agreed at the Lisbon summit last November.

This represents a critical contribution to the Alliance’s overall defence against current and emerging ballistic missile threats.

Turkey’s decision will significantly contribute to NATO’s capability to provide protection to its European territory, populations and forces against the growing threat posed by the proliferation of ballistic missiles.
