Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen spoke to a committee of the European Parliament about the role of NATO and the future of European Union (EU) defense policy. In his comments he said that the EU needed to back up its diplomacy with military efforts so as not to lose its credibility and influence in the world. He called on European member states to shoulder security and defense burdens with the U.S. and other allies. After his remarks, he answered questions on Syria, NATO’s relationship with the rest of the EU, and priorities for the EU defense summit scheduled for later in the year. close
