Warsaw Pact Countries

The Warsaw Pact was a treaty that was signed in Warsaw, Poland. This treaty was also known as the Treaty of Friendship, Cooperation, and Mutual Assistance. This alliance was established in 1955 and was signed by the Soviet Union and nations in Eastern Europe. It was established to counterbalance the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which was established in 1949 between the US, Canada, and Western Europe.

There were two parts of the Warsaw Treaty’s organization. This included the Political Consultative Committee and the Combined Command of Pact Armed Forces. The main goal of the Warsaw Pact was driven by the Soviet Union’s need to control Eastern and Central Europe. The Pact began to fall apart during the Revolutions of 1989 and was completely dissolved in 1991.

The original members of the alliance included Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and the Soviet Union. Albania was the first nation to withdraw, an event that occurred in 1968.
