Canadian politician lost important NATO documents
"This is a real treasure for those who are interested in Canada's foreign policy, because it contains complete reports on all hot spots," said Kopps, adding that the documents simply lay in the departure area.
According to Copps, Galant forgot the materials before flying to Lithuania for a parliamentary meeting of NATO countries.
Employees of the Galant office confirmed this fact, adding that Galant was in a hurry.
“She mentioned that she was in a hurry on the plane. When you have a wallet in your hands, a carry-on luggage and a pair of document folders, you put something on the counter, and then you forget to take it back, ”said one of the employees.
According to Copps, although the documents were not marked as secret, they contained valuable information on Canadian foreign policy. In particular, there were data on the transition period in the policy of Afghanistan in the conditions of the withdrawal of NATO troops from the country, as well as the British report on the proliferation of ballistic missiles in the world.
In addition, the folder contained letters from the president of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, Hugh Bailey, to the Russian parliamentarians regarding the termination of Russia's participation in this body because of the Ukrainian situation.
