Programme for Partnership for Peace
Following on from joining Partnership for Peace, a programme for Ireland's participation has recently been agreed.
This programme gives particular emphasis to cooperation in peacekeeping and humanitarian operations. This reflects the priorities set out in Ireland's Presentation Document, which was approved by Dáil Éireann in November 1999.
