The Warsaw Pact, also known as the Warsaw Treaty Organization, was a military and political alliance. Warsaw was established between the Soviet Union and several Eastern European nations on May 14, 1955 . The alliance was formed as a counterbalance to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) by the Soviet Union, a collective security alliance concluded between the United States, Canada and Western European nations in 1949.
Following World War II, The Warsaw Pact supplemented existing agreements as the Soviet Union had concluded bilateral treaties with each of the East European states except for East Germany, which was still part of the Soviet occupied-territory of Germany.
