NATO and the EU in the Chicago Summit. A necessary cooperation (DIEEEA23-2012)

The next 20 and May 21 will be held in Chicago the NATO Summit, which will meet the presidents of the Commission and the Council of the European Union, as well as the High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. In a situation where the financial crisis and electoral processes appear to call into question the soundness of a common policy on European security, the Lisbon Treaty opens a window of opportunity for its leaders to reinforce their positions, in a meeting where the main themes will be: the Alliance's commitment to Afghanistan through transition and beyond; ensuring the Alliance has the capabilities it needs to defend its population and territory and to deal with the challenges of the 21st century; and strengthening NATO's network of partners across the globe.
