Exchanging military data
Description: Interchanging basic military information between conflicting forces in an effort to diminish the likelihood of accidental war.
Implementation: At the 35-nation Conference on European Security and Disarmament in January, 1985, NATO proposed that NATO and the Warsaw Pact should annually exchange information on their military command organizations.
Claim: NATO argues that better exchanges of information on command headquarters locations, compositions of ground formations and land-based air forces could substantially reduce the risk of war by accident or miscalculation.
Counter Claim: The Warsaw Pact argues that information exchanges often provide license for espionage.
