The press conference was called to present a recent report released by the Foreign Policy Institute analyzing the recent developments in Europe. Mr. Brown said that the “changes in the Soviet Union and in Eastern Europe in the past two years provide a vindication for what NATO has been up to for forty years and ensures that its basic goals are being achieved.” These goals are freedom for Eastern Europe, reunification of Germany, and Soviet withdrawal to its own boarders. At the same time, recent developments in the Baltics and negotiations over the Treaty of Conventional Forces in Europe show that security problems in Europe have not disappeared. The report concludes that NATO is essential during the current protracted transitional period, and is vital to ensuring long-term peace and security in the region. close
