What is the full form of NATO
NATO: North Atlantic Treaty Organization
NATO stands for North Atlantic Treaty Organization. It is a political and military alliance of 28 countries. The organization was formed to safeguard the freedom and security of the member countries. The organization is headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
NATO was established on 4 April 1949 with the purpose of collective defense which means an attack on any of its member countries will be considered an attack on all allies.
The primary goal of NATO is to secure and protect the freedom of its member countries. But, in recent years, with the changing face of war, it has to expand its purpose and it has decided that it will also secure and protect the member countries from terrorism, cyber attacks and weapons of mass destruction.
