NATO ministers to discuss Afghanistan, Libya


BRUSSELS (AP) — NATO defense ministers meet Wednesday and they are expected to discuss ways of ending the alliance’s aerial campaign in Libya and training Afghan security forces for a larger role in their country’s war.


U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who took over from Robert Gates as Pentagon chief in July, will be making his first visit to Europe in that role to attend the meeting.

The conference will begin with a series of preparatory meetings by allied defense and foreign ministers in the run-up to NATO’s summit in May in Chicago.
