Enlargement a NATO response to terrorism, Shea says

NATO’s response to the attacks by global terrorists will be the further enlargement of the alliance, a senior official of the military bloc said at a meeting of think-tanks, academic circles, and civil society in Bratislava, the news wire TASR wrote.

NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General Jamie Shea spoke at the panel discussion held on the eve of the conference of leaders of eastern European states joining the alliance early next month.

"The more countries we have in the bloc the more effective will be in the fight against international terrorism," he told reporters afterwards.

Recent attacks, including Madrid a week ago, have shown that terrorists are well prepared at a global level.

"If you wonder whether there will be more attacks - no doubt there will be and terrorists will not discriminate between non-aligned and NATO member countries," Shea declared.
