NATO's 60th Anniversary Summit in 2009 is likely to launch the elaboration of a new Strategic Concept, to replace the 1999 document. The new Concept will have to reflect NATO's more operational nature and its more global orientation. It may also feature new language on nuclear matters, reflecting both the new proliferation landscape and renewed arms control concerns. Despite fundamental changes in these areas, and subsequent modifications of the nuclear doctrines and postures of the US, Britain and France, the statements on NATO's nuclear aspects are likely to remain conservative, with an emphasis on nuclear sharing and the maintenance of a small number of European-based tactical nuclear weapons.
