Abstract:

The contributions of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania the Baltic States to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization NATO, the European Union EU and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe OSCE, upon completing their membership obligations will enhance stability and security within the European continent. The U.S. has a unique relationship with the Baltic countries and wants continued stability in the northeastern region of Europe. Baltic membership in these organizations should enable the U.S. to maintain its influence in Europe. Baltic allies may contribute significantly to the current war on terrorism. Likewise, Baltic nations will benefit from alliances with more developed, wealthier nations. Effective alliances should offer advantages to all parties joined by them.
