Strategic Policy making for security pacts are undergoing constant changes. The structure of international system as well as the form and position of actors in the world politics play a key role in the ways and means of the big powers' strategic action. Regarding indications as such, emphasis can be put on the issue that in the post cold war era the North Atlantic Treaty Organization has attempted to harmonize a great spectrum of actors with its security objectives and on the other hand prepare grounds for strategic cooperation in dealing with regional crises. Indications of NATO security decision making in the regional crises can be taken into consideration within the framework of humanitarian actions as well as measures taken for countering terrorism.
