30 Allies, 1 NATO

Publication date

NATO is a diverse alliance of 30 countries from Europe and North America.
Democracy, liberty and the rule of law are the core values that bind our nations together.


As NATO Leaders gather in Brussels for the NATO Summit, we look at the founding principles of our Alliance, and reaffirm our solemn commitment to protecting each other. An attack against one Ally is an attack against all — ‘all for one, and one for all’.
For over 70 years, NATO has kept our countries and our people safe by continuously adapting to new security challenges. In a more unpredictable world, no country can address these increasingly complex challenges alone.
The strength of NATO is that we have always been able to unite around our core task: to defend each other, protect each other and keep our people safe.


No one knows what happens next,
what the future holds.
Which events will shape us,
and which will test our resolve.

Times have changed, you see. People too.
We need to stick together if we're going to make it through.

Sticking together means an Alliance of minds and hearts.
A collection of individuals greater than the sum of its parts.

People of all different kinds,
with different sets of skills that come together and align.

Because freedom is what matters.
It is why we must stand tall,
and it’s why we always tell them:
all for one, and one for all.
