Trust and understanding through REGEX 18
Belgrade hosted 49 participants from 16 different countries, whom NATO brought together in order to attend the Workshop VI. The aim of the Workshop is to build trust and understanding for better cooperation in the region, by promoting increased interoperability. These are the main goals of the exercise REGEX 18. Some of the participants joined for the first time. The workshop was organized by the Serbian Armed Forces, while the implementation was supervised by three members of JFC Naples. The REGEX initiative supports NATO efforts to make partner and host nations familiar with NATO procedures for multinational operations. REGEX 18 foresees a NATO-led and UN-approved Peace Support Operation, specifically developed with a scenario that is both politically and religiously neutral.
