This badge was issued to one of the attendees of what happened to be the last working conference the Warsaw Pact. By the time, communist regimes either had been overthrown or on their last legs in all of Eastern Europe, with the Soviet Union not far behind. The revolution in Romania at the end of 1990 ran its course without intervention from member countries, so the Pact had already been de facto dysfunctional by that time. It was officially disbanded in February of the next year. This badge is a very uncommon and interesting memento from the last days of the Cold War.
