Hi from Brussels. We arrived at the BBC’s bureau yesterday after a quick visit to NATO. The only clue that this is home to the world’s most powerful military alliance was the national flags adding a touch of colour. Further evidence will come in the form of NATO’s secretary general Jaap de Hoop Scheffer who’ll be hosting us from the NATO radio studio for the whole hour today.
He’ll answer your questions on any subject, but we only have an hour, so do get them in as early as you can.
A reminder of NATO in the news this week… Russia threatened to pull out of a meeting with it, if it goes ahead with exercises in Georgia next month. Georgia wants to join NATO, but Russia objects.
And two NATO ships chased and caught a band of Somali pirates over the weekend but then let them go.
