Crisis Management Exercise

NATO will conduct its annual Crisis Management Exercise (CMX) 16-22 April 2008. The purpose of the exercise is to practice Alliance crisis management procedures at the strategic political level
The exercise has a fictitious scenario, simulating a progressively deteriorating security situation beyond the Euro-Atlantic area. The key elements of this scenario are: an ongoing multi-national peacekeeping operation, a humanitarian crisis, terrorism, and threats by one nation against a neighbour.
Participants are civilian and military staffs in national capitals, at NATO Headquarters, and in both Strategic Commands. Unlike a live exercise, however, no forces are actually deployed for the purpose of these exercises.
All 26 NATO Allies have been involved in planning CMX 2008. NATO partner nations have joined the planning process for CMX 2008 and will also participate in the exercise, including Albania, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Croatia, Finland, Georgia, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia1 and Ukraine.
For the first time, in this fifteenth CMX, NATO Mediterranean Dialogue partners Israel and Morocco will also participate. Also for the first time, the NATO Liaison Officer at United Nations Headquarters in New York will participate in the CMX.
