The North Atlantic Treaty Organization is an intergovernmental military alliance between 29 North American and European nations, also known as the North Atlantic Partnership. The organisation, which was signed on April 4, 1949, implements the North Atlantic Treaty.The North Atlantic Council, which was established soon after the treaty came into effect, is composed of ministerial representatives of the member states, who meet at least twice a year. At other times the council, chaired by the NATO secretary-general, remains in permanent session at the ambassadorial level.
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization remained one of the most powerful international organizations to this day after its establishment with the Washington Treaty in 1949. Since the end of World War II, it has played key roles in settling several conflicts such as the Bosnian War and the eradication in Afghanistan of the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
In this committee, the member states are expected to work together according to the crises and take immediate actions.
