The White House just announced that Vice President Biden will travel to Brussels, Belgium, next week to meet with the North Atlantic Council, the principal forum for NATO’s 26 member states.

Biden will consult with allies on Afghanistan and Pakistan and to try to ensure their views help inform the strategic review ordered by President Obama, according to the administration's statement. Biden also will meet with NATO’s secretary general, senior leaders of the European Union and officials of the Belgian government.

More details will be released “at a later date,” according to the White House.
