NATO plans "PfP Plus" for non-first group members

NATO is developing a "super" Partnership for Peace (PfP) program for countries that are not invited to join the alliance in the first wave of expansion, Reuters reported on September 19. The new "PfP Plus" would aim to boost non-members' military cooperation and political contacts with NATO. U.S. Ambassador to Finland Derek Shearer estimated that 15 to 20 of the current 27 participants in the PfP, including Russia, could join the new group.
