The ALNG has conducted over 140 engagements since partnership inception focused on NATO interoperability, promoting political stability, assisting in the development of democratic institutions and open market economies, demonstrating military subordination and support to civil authorities, projecting U.S. humanitarian values and providing support to deploying troops in support of the current war fight.

Romania became a NATO partner 29 Mar 2004 and entered into a Bilateral Defense Cooperation Agreement with the United States (U.S.) in 2005.  European Union membership was achieved in January 2007.
