Video: Croatia is NATO, We Are NATO
A NATO member since 2009, Croatia has been an active participant in Allied exercises and operations, fully integrating with its Allies and improving European security.
Croatia began working with NATO under the Partnership for Peace programme in 2000, and was formally invited to join the Alliance in 2008.
Since joining, Croatia participated in security operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, regularly contributed to Operation Sea Guardian, helping secure the southern seas against illegal activity. Croatian troops have also regularly contributed to the multinational Battlegroup in Poland and more recently to the multinational Battlegroup in Hungary, helping protect the Alliance’s east.
NATO is a family of common values. We are united with our Allies under the principles of freedom, democracy and the rule of law, to prevent conflict and preserve peace.
