BUCHAREST, Romania — A former director of the CIA and former supreme commander of NATO will join other former high-ranking officials in the Romanian capital to discuss a wide range of issues from migration to terrorism.

The May 4-5 meeting organized by Romanian think tank Strategikon will also focus on populism and Britain's decision to leave the European Union.

A statement sent to The Associated Press Thursday said there will be discussions on the need for officials to cooperate with the private sector and academics.

Former CIA director David Petraeus and retired U.S. Air Force Gen. Philip M. Breedlove, who oversaw sweeping changes at NATO to deal with a resurgent Russia and the threat of armed Islamic extremism in the Middle East and Africa, will also attend. Breedlove left the post in 2016.
