Since 1994, NATO has been cooperating with seven nations across the Middle East and North Africa as part of its Mediterranean Dialogue: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Mauritania, Morocco, and Tunisia. Since 2005, the Alliance has also been cooperating with the African Union, of which Ghana is a member.
