NATO to stage anti-terrorist military demonstration in Taranto
font size    

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is to stage an anti-terrorist military demonstration on Wednesday in a naval base of Taranto, Italy.

The event, under NATO's jargon of "NAC-MC Sea Day," is to test the level of interoperationality between NATO naval forces and NATO's capacity of fighting international terrorism in the Mediterranean Sea.

According to NATO headquarters, NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, NATO Military Committee Chairman General Ray Henault and NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe General John Craddock will witness the demonstration.

The event will be conducted in Italian exercise areas within the Gulf of Taranto. The leaders will embark in Flag Ship USS Roosevelt to watch the show of various military operations.

Lieutenant Babis Bozoutsidis, a press officer for the event, told Xinhua that the military demonstration will include anti- submarine operations, air-defense exercises and inspection of suspect vessels.

The event, held every two years, will last about half a day, he added.

However, he was reluctant to elaborate in detail and asked Xinhua to watch the event in own eyes on Wednesday.
