We contribute to international stability

Military Partnerships

When our neighbours are more stable, we are more secure. Therefore Allies seek to contribute to the efforts of the international community in projecting stability and strengthening security outside NATO territory. One of the means to do so is through cooperation and partnerships. Over more than 25 years, the Alliance has developed a network of partnerships with non-member countries from the Euro-Atlantic area, the Mediterranean and the Gulf region, and other partners across the globe. NATO pursues dialogue and practical cooperation with these nations on a wide range of political and security-related issues. The Partnership Directorate at Mons, Belgium with its two subdirectorates for Civil Military Coorperation and Military Coorperation, all subordinate to Allied Command Operations, is the central coordinating body for this task.

Allied Air Command’s Partnership Branch is responsible for executing all Air-related NATO Partnership missions. These missions are defined in an annual programme established during a dedicated workshop at which all NATO Partnership units and Partners gather to evaluate recent activities and plan future schedules. The main missions performed by the Allied Air Command Partnership Branch are Expert Staff Visits, Mobile Training Teams and Operational Capabilities Concept, Evaluation and Feedback visits.

NATO’s partnerships are beneficial to all involved and contribute to improved security for the broader international community.
