NATO - Allied Command Transformation (ACT)

NATO - Allied Command Transformation (ACT)

NATO was founded on the idea that together we are stronger than the individual sum of our parts, and that’s never been more true.

We are continuing our essential work to defend Allies against any potential aggressor. We continue to deter attacks.

And we have taken every measure possible to ensure that #NATO plays its part to keep the communities where we live and work as safe as possible in the face of the #COVID19 pandemic.
