Jack Lopresti MP visits NATO HQ for Policy Talks

Jack Lopresti, the MP for Filton and Bradley Stoke was invited by the United States Embassy to a series of meetings with Senior NATO military personnel and officials to discuss various aspects of NATO missions.

The program brought Parliamentarians, representatives of the government, civil servants and active-duty military personnel to Brussels for detailed discussions on NATO policies and operations. One of the major points of discussion was the current NATO mission in Afghanistan and the hand-over of NATO ground troops to their Afghan National Army counterparts.

Jack said:

"The delegation was extremely informative and gave a useful insight into both NATO's current missions and the future direction of Policy. Having served in Afghanistan I was of course extremely interested in the progress being made in the handing over of internal security."

Jack served with 3 Commando Brigade as a Gunner on Operation Herrick 9 in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in the Autumn Winter of 2008/ 2009 and is a member of the Government Defence Support Group.
