North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO)

 

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) - established by a treaty signed in 1949. The treaty tied the security interested of the United States to those of the nations of Western Europe and other areas. NATO arose out of fear of the military and security threat posed by the Communist Soviet Union, although it still exists even after the fall of the U.S.S.R.
