Latvia’s President Vaira Vīķe-Freiberga officially opened the NATO Riga Summit Media Accreditation Center on November 23 by handing out the first three media accreditation cards.
The President chose three cards at random and produced a truly democratic result - a newspaper journalist, a radio journalist and a TV cameraman. The President used this event to get a firsthand look at the Main Summit Venue at the Latvian Olympic Center, and then inaugurated the Press Theatre with its first press conference – a few short remarks about next week’s big event.
