Humanitarian Role

" . . . It is not written in stone that the transatlantic bond will survive forever. But I believe we will preserve it . . .

We stand together. We protect each other."

Above Quote, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at Lancaster House - 21 June 2018

C o u r t e s y ,   N A T O

There should never be any doubt or confusion as to the reason NATO was formed.  The North Atlantic Treaty Organization's purpose is clearly defined: "NATO’s purpose is to guarantee the freedom and security of its members through political and military means." [https://www.nato.int/nato-welcome/index.html]

With that clearly understood, NATO and its Members are ever vigilant:   keeping careful watch for possible dangers or difficulties in  a now - more than ever before - fast-changing world wherein new and unprecedented challenges not only threaten NATO Members, but also the whole of Human existence including the very environment that all of Humanity inhabits.

The earliest years of the 21st Century have already presented alarming events  evidencing heinous acts of terror, violence and brutalities against innocent and helpless populations  of vulnerable men, women and children:  cruelties against Humanity  which must be concertedly  addressed - and even forcefully halted - with the joint efforts of Nations great and small. 

With tremendous burdens of extreme hardships yet being thrust upon large populations of the helpless and vulnerable, i.e. millions being subjected to forced displacements throughout diverse areas around the world, extensive Humanitarian needs are also growing globally.  

 

As the world continues its journey further into this new Century and Millennium, "Partnerships for Humanity" and it's life-sustaining environment must lead the way!

Thanks to the growing "Helping Hands of NATO and it's Members" Humanity in its entirety can continue to  look forward to a secured, peaceful and prosperous co-existence  within a healthy environment NOW . . . and for future generations to come!

CRUCIAL QUESTON?!

"INNOCENT CTIZENS OF

HUMANITY?"

YES!

Now in a new era - a new Century and Millennium of the "Human existence" - a time when "The Whole of Humanity" is poised to embark upon that path of perpetual well being and prosperity for many generations to come, ACTS OF LAWLESS, AGGRESSIVE WARFARE HAVE NO PLACE OF RIGHTFUL INTERFERENCE THROUGHOUT GLOBAL AFFAIRS THAT ENABLE AND PROPERLY PROPEL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT, SUSTAINABILITY, PROGRESS AND LONGEVITY.

THE PATH OF DIPLOMACY MUST PREVAIL!

HARM CAUSED TO ONE "HUMAN BEING"

DUE TO "LAWLESS, AGGRESSIVE

WARFARE"  IN ANY PLACE

GLOBALLY IS AN ACT OF

"CRIMES AGAINST

The Secretary General described the action NATO is taking on climate change, including the first alliance-wide assessment to evaluate the impact of climate change on infrastructure, operations, and the security environment: “Windier, wetter and wilder weather matters for everything our armed forces do.  So this will impact our exercises, our capabilities and we are integrating this into our military planning and our capability development.  So climate change matters for NATO because it matters for our security, and NATO is now addressing these challenges.”  Mr. Stoltenberg also explained how NATO Allies are working to reduce their militaries’ dependence on fossil fuels by investing in sustainable solutions, including biofuels and solar energy.

NATO Secretary General's Statement on Afghanistan

13 August 2021 

Our aim remains to support the Afghan government and security forces as much as possible. The security of our personnel is paramount. NATO will maintain our diplomatic presence in Kabul, and continue to adjust as necessary. 

NATO SG JENS STOLTENBERG 5ab.jpg

NATO Allies are deeply concerned about the high levels of violence caused by the Taliban’s offensive, including attacks on civilians, targeted killings, and reports of other serious human rights abuses. The Taliban need to understand that they will not be recognised by the international community if they take the country by force.  We remain committed to supporting a political solution to the conflict.
