The new strategic concepts of NATO and the European Union should contribute to overcoming differences and shaping solutions that will lead to longterm stabilization. In this respect, the NATO Smart Defense concept and the EU Pooling & Sharing concept should contribute to building common capacities to provide an adequate and effective response to contemporary security challenges. In these concepts, NATO member states and the European Union can take military participation in order to eliminate the most diverse risks and threats. Participation involves joint and reciprocal engagement in the defined missions and tasks. Intensification of participation involves the use of new techniques, technologies and knowledge to preserve the existing resources. In the internal political plan, states are therefore obliged to anticipate measures to eliminate all potential threats, challenges and risks at the national and international level.
