International energy security

The end of the G8 summit in 2005 was marked by an official communique.

On energy security, it says:
"12. Following the success of the Energy and Environment Ministerial Roundtable held in London in March, the UK will hold meetings to take the Dialogue forward in the second half of this year, including by identifying specific implementation plans for carrying out each of the commitments under the Plan of Action."
"13. We welcome the Russian decision to focus on energy in its Presidency of the G8 in 2006 and the programme of meetings that Russia plans to hold."

The importance of energy is starting to raise questions whether national security arrangements are sufficient. Is there a role here for NATO?
