Defence on MP’s agenda for Nato visit
LLANELLI MP Nia Griffith recently visited Nato headquarters in her role as Labour’s Shadow Defence Secretary.
Ms Griffith explained: “In an uncertain world, it is all the more important that we stand together with our allies, and work through organisations like Nato and the UN to achieve a more peaceful and secure world.”
“It was a privilege to visit Nato headquarters last month along with my colleague Emily Thornberry MP, the Shadow Foreign Secretary. Emily and I met the Deputy Supreme Allied Commander Europe, a post held by a British Army officer, as well as the UK ambassador to Nato and a number of Nato officials.
“We discussed important issues like how we can work with our fellow Nato countries to pool resources so that we can defend the UK and our allies more effectively. We focussed particularly on how to combat new and emerging means of attack, such as cyber, which are becoming ever more easily and cheaply accessible, not just to states but also to terrorist groups.”
