ABSTRACT

Report on Allied Contributions to the Common Defense (2002)   [open pdf - 2MB]

This Report presents the Department of Defense's annual assessment of the relative contributions toward the common defense and mutual security made by our NATO allies, our Pacific allies (Japan and the Republic of Korea), and the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) - Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Under legislative provisions dating back to the Defense Authorization Act of 1981 (Public Law 96-342, Section 1006), the Secretary of Defense has provided an annual report to Congress comparing the defense burdens borne by our allies, explaining disparities, and describing efforts to eliminate such disparities. This year's Report also covers responsibility sharing requirements in the FY 2002 Department of Defense Military Construction Appropriations Act (Public Law 107-64, Section 119).
