NATO and Croatia actively cooperate in a range of areas, with a particular emphasis on defence and security sector reform, as well as support for wider democratic and institutional reform. In April 2008, Croatia was invited to start accession talks to become a member of the Alliance. The accession protocols were signed on 9 July 2008. Croatia officially became a NATO member on 1 April 2009.
