Host Nation Support

Host Nation Support (HNS, gastlandsteun) houdt in dat NAVO-bondgenoten elkaar steun verlenen bij operaties op elkaars grondgebied.

De officiële definitie uit het NATO Logistics Handbook:

The NATO definition of HNS is “Civil and military assistance rendered in peace, crisis, and war by a Host Nation to Allied forces and NATO organizations which are located on or in transit through the Host Nation’s territory. The basis of such assistance is commitments arising from the NATO Alliance or from bilateral or multilateral agreements concluded between the Host Nation, NATO organizations and (the) nation(s) having forces operating on the Host Nation’s territory.

Op deze website hebben we twee voorbeelden van HNS:

  1. Defensie helpt bij Amerikaanse troepenverplaatsing
  2. Bijtanken, Trident Juncture in Stroe
