The Rt. Hon. Lord George Robertson of Port Ellen, NATO's 10th Secretary General (1999-2003), KT. GCMG, FRSA,FRSE gave this interview to ICDT introducing his vision of NATO in the 21st Century.

His main message: the world remains a dangerous place these days. In order to ensure the security of the member states as well as their democratic order, NATO is as relevant as is has ever been – although with a different, broader and more difficult mission.
