Representatives of the United Nations Secretary General’s High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations visited NATO Headquarters on 19 February 2015 for an exchange of views on the challenges facing peace operations.
The Independent Panel on Peace Operations met with the NATO Deputy Secretary General Ambassador Alexander Vershbow and with other senior NATO officials. During the meetings, they discussed how NATO-UN co-operation could help address some of the challenges faced by peace operations in a manner that respects the specific mandates of the two organisations. They also exchanged views about NATO’s operational experience over the past 20 years and the Alliance’s role in defence capacity building.
