Most foreign policy is carried out by governments and their diplomats. But elected members of national legislatures also play important roles influencing foreign policies, especially in democracies. Joining Susan and Greg are the presidents of the parliamentary assemblies of NATO and the OSCE to discuss what they do, the state of the transatlantic alliance and challenges for both organizations.
