    Background: BELGIUM BRUSSELS

    Britain's former Foreign Secretary Lord Carrington chaired his first NATO (NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY ORGANISATION) meeting on 27/6, two days after taking over as the organisation's Secretary-General. He succeeds Dutchman Joseph Luns who retired last Friday (22/6) after nearly thirteen years in the post. A firm believer in East-West dialogue Lord Carrington has inherited a series of problems. These include calls for NATO to build up its conventional forces, a shortage of cash and pressure from the United States on Western Europe to increase its spending on defence.
