Iceland and NATO

Iceland has been a member of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) since its foundation in 1949. Membership of the Alliance and the Defence Agreement with the United States of America has been the two main pillars of Iceland's security policy. With the changing security environment and the transformation of NATO, the contribution of Iceland to the Alliance has undergone major change. While having no standing army, Iceland contributes to NATO operations with both financial contributions and civil personnel.
