NATO reveals plans for 2 new headquaters



In a move likely to irk Russia, NATO has backed plans for two new military headquarters in Europe.

The move represents the biggest expansion in decades for the Western military alliance. NATO says its members hope the military headquarters will boost the organization’s deterrence against Russia in the event of a conflict. According to western diplomats, Germany is eager to host one of the NATO headquarters.

Moscow has time and again condemned moves by the alliance to expand in Europe, saying such attempts aim to encircle Russia. The Kremlin has responded by holding large military exercises on its western borders and boosting its military capabilities.
