NATO Supreme Allied Commander Europe said the alliance should work with new members Bulgaria and Romania to crack down on smuggling and drug trafficking in the Black Sea.

Talking to the United Press International, Gen. James L. Jones said NATO should become more proactive in preventing conflicts and preempting attacks against its members through proactive engagement at an early stage.

According to Jones the threats the alliance now faced, such as terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, risks to energy supplies and critical infrastructure, were "quite a bit different from those the alliance faced in the Twentieth Century."
