Attendees included a wide range of representation from across the NATO enterprise to include the International Staff, International Military Staff, Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, and NATO School Oberammergau.
The aim of the bi-annual expert talk was to review military cooperation goals and objectives, provide information exchange, develop greater synchronized collaboration, and facilitate understanding.
During their visit, the delegation reviewed multiple topics to strengthen the relationship between NATO and Tunisia. Areas of focus included a review of 2019 activities, current partnership goals, and education, training, exercise, and evaluation (ETEE) opportunities for 2020 and beyond.
“The military cooperation between NATO and Tunisia is executing at a very high level. I am very satisfied with the practical cooperation in capacity building and the exchange of experiences and best practices. Tunisia’s participation in NATO activities increases every year to the benefit of both the NATO alliance and themselves. I expect their generous NATO cooperation trend to continue into the future”, said COL Francois Marechal, Military Partnership Branch Head and meeting Chair.
Within the Mediterranean Dialogue framework, Tunisia-NATO cooperation comprises a wide range of areas to include the Defence Education Enhancement Programme, Building Integrity Programme, Operational Capability Concept Evaluation and Feedback, Defence Capacity Building, and the Interoperability platform.
