What is NATO?

NATO is a political and military aliance that was founded on April 4th 1949 by signing the Washington Treaty. NATO promotes democratic values and enables members to consult and cooperate on defence and security-related issues to solve problems, build trust and, in the long run, prevent conflict. NATO is also committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. If diplomatic efforts fail, it has the military power to undertake crises-management operations.
