BRUSSELS, June 8 (Reuters) - NATO ministers approved a set of reforms on Wednesday that will mean the closure of some of the alliance's 11 bases in Europe, a NATO statement said.

NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the closures and the streamlining of agencies that run areas such as ground surveillance and strategic airlift would make NATO "leaner, more flexible," as well as "more affordable."
