    Background: Dr Joseph Luns, Secretary-General of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) is this week touring Allied military installations in south eastern Europe.

    On Monday (30 June) Dr Luns -- who is on a six-day tour -- reviewed a military parade at the NATO base near Rome. He was accompanied by the Commander for Allied Forces in Southern Europe, Admiral Means-Johnston.

    Later at a news conference in Naples, Dr Luns denounced what he called "counter-productive actions" by the United States Congress in stopping miliary aid to Turkey.

    He added that if NATO bases in Turkey were to close as the result of the cutback in aid, it would weaken NATO's eastern flank.

    Meanwhile, Italian and British forces have begun a four-day land and air military exercise in northeast Italy on Monday.
