Short way to work.

Ambassadors to NATO are officially Permanent representatives, but they are often informally described as ambassadors. However, although a permanent representative typically holds the diplomatic rank of an ambassador, because they are accredited to an international organization the official title is permanent representative.

The ambassadors sit on the North Atlantic Council (NAC), formally the principal political decision-making body of NATO.

Both NATO (since 1966) and the EU have their headquarters in Brussels; SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe) is in the south of the country, near Mons. Since January 1993, the military alliance WEU (Western European Union) has been headquartered in Brussels.
