I. Introduction
In July 2016,  the Warsaw   Summit   Communique confirmed NATO
Allies' longstanding commitment   to ensure that the Alliance remains
an unparalleled  community   of freedom,  peace, security, and shared
values.3
As a consequence,  ensuring the interoperability of multinational armed
forces is fundamental to protecting and defending the indivisible security
and the common   values of the Alliance.
