Defence Minister prepares for NATO meeting in Brussels

Minister for Defence Kevin Andrews will attend a NATO meeting in Brussels."

The Minister for Defence Kevin Andrews has announced he will attend a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) Defence Ministers' Meeting in the Belgian capital.

On the agenda is an in-depth discussion on security issues that affect member nations and ways to combat these challenges using a joint action strategy. 

Mr Andrews says he is going to meet representatives from the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Sweden and Ukraine as well as delegates from other NATO member and partner countries.

This comes at a time when news is trickling through of the extensive damage caused by a series of blasts in Kabul.

The minister says events such as the one in the Afghan capital reiterates the fact that the region needs ongoing assistance.   

This will also be an opportunity for Mr Andrews to confirm Australia's continued support of the Resolute Support Mission, and the country's strong ties with NATO. 

The nation remains one of the largest non-NATO contributors to the mission. Currently, 400 Australian Defence Force personnel are deployed in the volatile region part of Operation HIGHROAD.

Mr Andrews says he also expects to discuss other security threats such as Iraq and in Ukraine. There may also be an opportunity to consider the options for Australia's future cooperation with NATO through the Enhanced Opportunities Partnership (EOP).

"The EOP initiative aims to promote practical cooperation between Australia and NATO in areas such as bilateral exchanges, secondments and exercises, building on Australia's already strong partnership with NATO," he said in a statement released by the Department of Defence Ministers.
