NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) and the Treaties of the European Union

Description of NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation) provided by the European Union Commission: The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO, or the Atlantic Alliance) was founded in 1949 and has its headquarters in Brussels. It currently has 26 members, following successive enlargements:

• 12 founding members: Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the United States;

• February 1952: Greece and Turkey;

• May 1955: the Federal Republic of Germany;

• May 1982: Spain;

• March 1999: the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland;

• in March 2004, seven other countries officially joined NATO. They are countries from former Communist Europe and, in some cases, former members of the old USSR: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The EU's policy respects the NATO obligations of the Member States concerned and is compatible with the common security and defence policy agreed in NATO. The Declaration on Western European Union annexed to the EU Treaty clarifies future relations between NATO and the WEU, which serves as the defence arm of the Union and as a means of strengthening the European pillar of the Atlantic Alliance.
