MONS, Belgium – NATO's Permanent Representatives visited Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) on Thursday, Oct. 12, 2017 to take part in a series of briefings and roundtable discussions with SHAPE senior leaders.

General Curtis M. Scaparrotti, the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, provided insight on the current priorities for Allied Command Operations with dialogue focusing mainly on deterrence posture and projecting stability.

"To ensure the Alliance is trained and ready for today's evolving security environment, it is important to have discussions with NATO's political leaders about key efforts such as Forward Presence, Projecting Stability and NCS Adaptation," said General Scaparrotti. "Our troops must remain robust and agile."

NATO's Permanent Representatives sit on the North Atlantic Council, the principal political decision-making body, and is supported by a national delegation composed of advisers and officials who represent their country on different NATO committees.
