On February 9, an ATA Delegation was invited to NATO Headquarter to take part in the quarterly seminar BRIEF THE BRIEFERS.

The full day program aims to bring together NATO officials and ATA representatives to better coordinate the strategic communication on our joint ATA-NATO priorities.

“Brief the Briefers” is targeted at ATA members who play an active role in the dialogue on transatlantic defense and security, who have demonstrated their continued added value to the ATA network and whose activities exhibit a great level of impact in their respective countries.

This year,  H.E. Amb. Tacan ILDEM, Assistant Secretary General of the Public Diplomacy Division Section, welcomed a Delegation of 16 ATA members to discuss the critical points of NATO engagement for 2017. Following the outcomes of the Warsaw Summit, this seminar focused on key NATO issues ranging from NATO’s Defense and Deterrence Capability to Projecting Stability beyond borders, with a particular emphasis on NATO-Russia relations and emerging cyber threats.
