RAMSTEIN, Germany – From 21 to 23 May, Allied Air Command sent two Mobile Training Teams to Serbia, training 55 members of the Serbian Armed Forces on different aspects of air operations. It was the second time an Allied Air Command Mobile Training Team deployed to Serbia, to inform Serbian airmen about NATO standards, best practices and lessons learned in the air domain.
"We were very proud to be part of the Military Partnership process with Serbia and that we can present our topics to such a highly qualified and interactive audience with great operational experience,” said Lieutenant Colonel Jochen Rosendahl, leader of both teams. "This Mobile Training Team mission has been a great success. It started with a very warm welcome from our Serbian hosts and the opportunity to better understand the Serbian Armed Forces structure. I have no doubt that there will be future opportunities to further enhance the level of practical cooperation between NATO and Serbia in this field”, he added.
Serbia is a very active partner in Allied Air Command’s partnership network. The NATO Military Partnership Programme contributes to increased international stability and security through cooperative engagement with forces of non-NATO countries establishing with them, direct operational and technical connectivity.
Over the past 25 years, the Alliance has developed a network of regional partnership frameworks with 41 partner countries from the Euro-Atlantic area, the Mediterranean and the Gulf region, as well as individual relationships with other partners across the globe. NATO pursues dialogue and practical cooperation with these nations on a wide range of political and security-related issues.
