NATO will launch a TV channel on 2 April to coincide with the begin of a NATO summit in Bucharest, Romania.

"NATO has been in the stone age when it comes to video issues," spokesman James Appathurai told reporters in Brussels Wednesday.

"Thanks to a great contribution by the Danish government we will launch next week in Bucharest a NATO TV channel which will have two aspects, one for the public and one for journalists," he noted.

The spokesman said a number of TV teams will be dispatched to Afghanistan to send regulars news items on the alliance's ISAF "mission".

NATO TV will broadcast about 10 news item weekly and also offer a lot of archive material for download.
