Liberal Party NEC Statement - NATO 70th anniversary
The Liberal Party wishes to acknowledge the imminent 70th anniversary of the creation of The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) with the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty in April 1949.
Although the organisation has endured and expanded the party believes that it ‘s mission should remain that of mutual defence within mainland Europe.
The participation in the Libyan crisis of 2011 even with UN backing, as with its involvement in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Indian Ocean off Somalia have taken NATO forces beyond the reasonable boundaries of its mandate.
We believe that the alliance would be better engaged in deepening regional contacts and offering additional avenues for co-operation and de-escalation in regional conflicts within its geographical sphere of influence.
