Brussels, June 1 (IANS/RIA Novosti) NATO defence chiefs will meet in Brussels next week to review measures for protecting member countries from cyber attacks, a diplomatic source said Friday.

US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will be among the ministers meeting Tuesday and Wednesday.

Eleven countries involved in running the centre comprise — Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, and the US.
