And Committee’s main objective is to find solutions and take appropriate action regarding the diplomatic and geopolitical perspectives and significant details of its agenda, which was one of the biggest events in Cold War era, the "Iron Curtain" that the Soviet Union erected as a political, military, and ideological shield after World War II to isolate itself and its reliant allies in eastern and central Europe from direct interaction with the West and other noncommunist regions.

The primary aim of the discussions in the aforementioned committee is to come up with major proposals regarding NATO and the way that the member states of the strategic partnership will conduct themselves in this circumstance while also being considerate in the alliance's interests and benefits, the member states' present and future, and to prevent problems that will leave permanent traces in history.
