"NATO boss Rasmussen calls for stronger security cooperation with EU"


In an exclusive interview, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen says it "makes sense" for the EU and NATO to cooperate politically and militarily. On Afghanistan, he hopes for a transfer of responsibility for security to the Afghans to start next year and on relations with Moscow, he points to common threats and says that "NATO is not an enemy of Russia". Finally, he likens his present job to his former role as Danish prime minister in that it is all about "consensus building".
