The Armenian Atlantic Association (AAA) is a non-governmental organization established on October 30, 2001 that aims to foster Armenia’s links with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and promote better understanding within Armenia of NATO’s mission and activities in the changing international environment. To that end, the Association strives to correct misperceptions about NATO and its policies that exist among Armenia’s political elite and ordinary citizens. The Association adheres to the principles of equality, self-governance and public service. The Association does not pursue political aims and is not affiliated with any political group.
Armenia was one of the first former Soviet
republics to rid itself of Communist rule in 1990 and to embark
on sweeping political and economic reforms.
