1994-01 Brussels Belgium


Jan 1994, Brussels (Belgium), when approved by Summit Meeting of Heads of State and Government of C-XC3005 - NATO. A PfP Status of Forces Agreement, defines the legal status of NATO and Partner military forces when present on each other's territory.


Expand and intensify political and military cooperation throughout Europe; increase stability, diminish threats to peace and build strengthening relationships by promoting the spirit of practical cooperation and commitment to democratic principles; offer participating states, including Central and Eastern European countries, CIS member states and neutral European countries, the opportunity to strengthen their relations with NATO by taking part in security cooperation programmes, such as military exercises and civil emergency operations, tailored to their individual requirements and in which they increasingly have a say in planning and directing. Specific objectives: facilitate transparency in national defence planning and budgeting processes; ensure democratic control of defence forces; maintain capability and readiness to contribute to operations under the authority of the UN and/or the responsibility of the OSCE; develop cooperative military relations with NATO for the purpose of joint planning, training and exercises, in order to strengthen the ability of participating countries to undertake crisis management operations; over the longer term, develop forces better able to operate with those of the North Atlantic Alliance.
