In this period, the organization faced conventional questions about whether a new generation of leaders would be as committed to NATO as their predecessors had been,[2] but events gave those concerns a new spin. In August 1994, NATO air strikes were ordered in an attempt to protect UN safe havens and deter the Bosnia Serbs from further aggression.[3]


The general discussions focused on the reeaffirmation of Alliance readiness to carry out air strikes in support of UN objectives in Bosnia and Herzegovina.[1] Also discussed was the launching of the Partnership for Peace (PfP) initiative in which allAll North Atlantic Cooperation Council partner countries and members of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (CSCE) were invited to participate.[1]


The summit's work was followed by publication of the Partnership for Peace Framework Document.[1]

The summit leaders endorsed the concept of Combined Joint Task Forces (CJTFs) and other measures to develop the European Security and Defence Identity.[1]
