In August 1995, after the Srebrenica genocide, a two-week NATO bombing campaign, Operation Deliberate Force, began against the Republika Srpska army.  New NATO airstrikes helped end the Yugoslav wars, leading to the Dayton Accords in November 1995.  As part of this agreement, NATO sent a UN-mandated peacekeeping force as part of Operation Joint Endeavor, known as IFOR. Nearly 60,000 NATO forces have joined troops from non-NATO countries in this peacekeeping operation. It joined the smallest SFOR, which began with 32,000 troops and took place from December 1996 to December 2004, when operations were then transferred to the US Althea force.  After the leadership of its member countries, NATO began awarding a service medal for these operations, the NATO Medal.  Beyond NATO`s direct budget, Alliance member states agreed in 2014 that each state should increase its own defence spending to 2% of its respective GROSS GOLD PRODUCT by 2024. The NATO Resources Office brings together all NATO international staff members who deal with resources. The Office provides integrated political and technical advice to the NAK and the Secretary-General, NATO resource committees and other NATO bodies.
The Office facilitates resource agreements between Member States. Each financial controller uses the most recent Committee on Budgets in the event of a persistent disagreement with the head of the respective NATO body over a proposed transaction. The financial controller is responsible for ensuring that all aspects of budget implementation are in line with expenditure appropriations, special controls imposed by the budget committee, and the financial rules and procedures and procedures for carrying them. It may also, in response to the internal audit, put in place additional controls and procedures that it deems necessary to maintain accountability. On 16 April 2003, NATO declared its readiness to take command of the 42-country International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). The decision was taken at the request of Germany and the Netherlands, the two main ISAF countries at the time of the agreement, and the 19 NATO ambassadors unanimously approved it. The transfer of control to NATO took place on 11 August and marked the first time in NATO`s history that it led a mission outside the North Atlantic.  At the Wales Summit in 2014, NATO leaders agreed that each nation would spend 2% of its gross domestic product on defence by 2024. The measure was not binding and even at that time there was widespread speculation that all allied nations could one day achieve it, but the agreement was seen as a symbolic demonstration of unity immediately after the Russian invasion of Ukrainian territory.
