Quote

Tony Blair

"...this is a very, very important Summit in my view because ever since the Soviet Union has gone, NATO has been, as it were, considering what its role for the future is.  Now I think that role is very, very clear and very strong and we need to develop it and I think the Riga Summit will give us a chance to do that and I hope therefore the reforms the Secretary-General of NATO is putting forward are reforms that we listen to and act on

- Tony Blair,
The British Prime Minister
