Chicago ready to welcome NATO summit in 2012
In her remarks before the unveiling of the logo, Secretary Clinton stated that “President Obama is very excited about being able to host the NATO Summit in Chicago” and was looking forward to “what will be another very significant NATO Summit”.
The Chicago Summit will be the first NATO Summit in the United States since 1999, when the Alliance celebrated its 50th anniversary in Washington.
The Secretary General commented on his vision for NATO and the Summit in a speech on 30 September 2011: “In Chicago, I am confident that you will see a NATO Alliance demonstrating its strong solidarity even in difficult economic times. An Alliance that is committed, capable and connected.”
