Nato should cut overheads: defence minister

Nato should cut costs in its command structure to free up more money for operations such as its security mission in Afghanistan, Nos tv quotes defence minister Eimert van Middelkoop as saying.

Nos says Van Middelkoop made the plea in a letter to his Nato colleagues. Nato spends €545m on its headquarter operations and just €362m on military operations, Nos says.
