Stephen Flanagan, a foreign policy expert with the National Defense University, answered listener questions about NATO enlargement and other security issues during a live Webcast from Washington, D.C., hosted by the Joint Baltic American National Committee.
Flanagan is director of the university’s Institute for National Strategic Studies.
The Webcast was the sixth such event organized by JBANC, a Washington-based lobby for Baltic interests. The organization has been hosting the Webcasts as part of its campaign to raise awareness of the Baltic states’ desire to join the NATO defense alliance.
Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, most observers agree, are sure to be invited to join the alliance during NATO’s Prague Summit in November. However, whether NATO members will ratify Baltic membership remains to be seen.
