NATO Mission Iraq (NMI) is a non-combat capacity building and advisory mission founded on partnership and inclusivity as well as on full respect for Iraq’s sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity. In order to inspire long lasting change in Iraqi security institutions.
NMI’s advisory activities are conducted in the greater Baghdad area, including in the Iraqi Ministry of Defence, the Office of the National Security Advisor, and relevant national security institutions. NMI training activities are carried out at the Iraqi military schools in the Baghdad area, Taji and Besmayah.
NMI is a new iteration of a long-standing relationship between the Alliance and Iraq, providing expertise and best practice in security/defence sector reform, institution building and training and education from the entire Alliance and its partners from all over the world.
