From the Army Times: The issue of information-sharing is even more important when deciding how to handle ballistic missile defense, [NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander for Transformation Gen. Stéphane] Abrial said.
“For BMD, this will be probably more difficult than in other domains,” he noted. “This notion is still contentious — some nations are very willing, others are not.”
And if NATO takes over the mission, “it will be necessary to solve this critical issue of information-sharing,” which won’t be easy, he said.
“It is extremely closed and sensitive and related to the sovereignty of nations,” Abrial said. “It could not be NATO alone.” (photo: Getty)
