North Atlantic Treaty Organization

The history of relations between Belarus and NATO began in 1992, when the country joined the North Atlantic Cooperation Council, which was transformed in 1997 into the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council – EAPC.

In 1995, the Republic of Belarus joined the “Partnership for Peace” (PfP) programme, viewing it as an important tool to strengthen cooperation in the political, military, economic, scientific and legal areas with NATO in general, as well as with individual NATO members states.

In April 1998, Belarus opened its' Permanent Mission to NATO in Brussels.

The main planning document of Belarus’ participation in the PfP was the Individual Partnership and Cooperation Program (IPCP), which was adopted on a biannual basis. The first Individual Partnership Program with Belarus was endorsed by the NATO Council in July 1997.

In 2004, Belarus acceded to the PfP Planning and Review Process (PARP) with the main task to develop the framework of military cooperation with NATO.

Collaboration with NATO on emergency response was carried out through participation in the Committee for Civil Emergency Planning, the Civil Protection Group, which were held in the format of the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, interaction with the Euro-Atlantic Disaster Response Coordination Center, and also through the PARP.

Practical interaction between the Republic of Belarus and NATO was suspended on November 19, 2021 at the initiative of the Alliance.

Belarus is ready to resume pragmatic interaction with NATO on an equal and mutually respectful basis, taking into account mutual security concerns.
