Introduction to NATO

The United Nations Charter provides the juridical basis for the creation of the Alliance and establishes the overall responsibility of the UN Security Council for international peace and security.

Article 51 of the UN Charter establishes the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence of all UN member countries. The preamble to the North Atlantic Treaty makes it clear from the outset that the UN Charter is the framework within which the Alliance operates. (UN Logo)

Both juridical and strong practical links exist between the UN Charter and the North Atlantic Treaty on the one hand, and the institutions of the UN and those of the Alliance on the other. Both these elements contribute to the wider institutional framework within which the Alliance operates.
