Capital O or R to NATO (5)


I believe the answer is:


'r to nato' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this definition defines the answer.

'capital o' is the wordplay.
'capital' becomes 'rome' (capital of Italy).

'or' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for romeo that I've seen before include "Lover of Juliet" , "Literary lover" , "Tragic Shakespeare hero" , "Code word for the letter R" , "Ladies' man" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
