Mohideen Mifthah VILNIUS, Nov 17, 2010 (AFP) – NATO’s Baltic state minnows will have their defences boosted by a crucial summit of the 28-nation alliance this week, Lithuania said Wednesday. “Finally, six and a half years after we became a member of NATO, we’ll have real, not just formal membership, with all the security guarantees,” a spokesman for Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite told AFP.
