DNAT delegation participated in the NATO PA in Tirana from 27 to 30 May 2016


At the Plenary session, the Assembly was addressed by H.E. Ambassador Vershbow, Deputy SG of NATO. At this occasion, Ms Eva Kaili,Head of the EP delegation asked about ways to substantially enhance cooperation between the EU and NATO to address the common challenges of both organisations.

In his answer, the Dep. SG said that in spite of the still existing political difficulties there has been a huge amount of progress recently in EU/NATO cooperation, such as in the area of maritime security(through the NATO operation in the Aegean Sea and in the future possibly also in the Central Mediterranean), hybrid warfare, capacity building in the MENA region or support to Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia. In this context he highlighted the great level of complementarity between the two organisations and mentioned possible future cooperation areas, such as the fight against terrorism, illegal migration or countering disinformation campaigns and other forms of hybrid warfare.

Welcome words
 

The European Parliament through its Delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (NATO PA) brings the EU dimension to this parliamentary forum. It is our privilege to represent our Institution at the NATO PA . Through the various activities of the NATO PA, and particularly the participation at the sessions of the Assembly, the DNAT delegation tries to enhance the European  voice in the security and defence issues and also to make the EU role more visible. Within the activities of DNAT during the 8th parliamentary term of the EP, our task will be to continue to bring the position of EP in the perspective of developing the relations between EU and NATO, with the respect of the independence of the nature of both organisations. As a newly elected chair of DNAT, I am eager to face new activities and challenges ahead of us. 
Eva Kaili, Chair of DNAT
 
What is the Delegation for Relations with the NATO Parliamentary Assembly?
 
The European Parliament decided on 12 December 2001 to set up an interparliamentary Delegation for Relations with the NATO Parliamentary Assembly (D-NAT) composed of 10 Members (see Members). D-NAT Members shall consist of Members of the Subcommittee on Security and Defence (SEDE). The D-NAT is supported by a secretariat which consists of staff members of the SEDE secretariat.
 
The aim of the D-NAT is to bring forward the position of the EU, and of the European Parliament in particular, to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in view of further developing the relationship between EU and NATO, while respecting the independent nature of both organisations. This is of particular importance in the theatres of operations where both the EU and NATO are engaged, such as Afghanistan, Kosovo and in the fight against piracy off the coasts of Somalia and in the Gulf of Aden.
