PROKULPJE, Serbia – Members from the Allied Joint Force Command Naples Counter Improvised Explosive Devices section trained Serbian Armed Forces in reducing the threat posed by IEDs in Prokulpje, Serbia from June 4 to 8.

The training audience of 20 was composed of Serbian personnel from both the Minister of Defence and Military Police.  According to the training team, he audiences’ interest was apparent by their engagement and dialogue with the NATO instructor throughout the week.  The active participation in the event not only strengthened the message delivered by NATO, it also stimulated thoughts on the ways to adapt established tactics, techniques and procedures to the specific needs of Serbian Armed Forces.

Serbia is a partner nation from the Partnership for Peace Framework. It currently participates in numerous NATO initiatives including various courses at NATO Centres of Excellences, NATO School Oberammergau, NATO Partnership Training and Education Centres, the NATO Defense College, Senior Executive NATO courses and other Key Leader Engagements. This particular Mobile Training Team is a practical expression of NATO’s engagement through partnerships, an activity that highly contributes to the mutual trust and interoperability with NATO.
