Background: On May 5, 6 and 7, NATO meets in Copenhagen for the first time, and the Danish Foreign Ministry have been busy for the past several weeks, preparing for the honour. The state has spent already thousands of Kroner on special facilities - such as the establishment of a ship close to Christiansborg as a headquarters for some of the 600, or so, reporters who will attend the meeting. A special news-service is being established with twice-daily jet air services to Paris, London and Cologne. The NATO meeting itself will be held in Christiansborg Castle, Copenhagen, built in 1973. On the balcony of this stately bestion, several Kings of Denmark have been crowned. This coming week, the future of nations will be discussed by 15 foreign ministers.
