Lago Patria, ITALY - Chief of Serbian Armed Forces General Milan Mojsilović visited Allied Joint Force Command Naples in Lago Patria May 15, 2019.
JFC Naples Commander, American Navy Admiral James J. Foggo hosted the visit.
"It was an honor to welcome General Mojsilović to my Allied Joint Force Command Headquarters in Naples, Italy,” said Foggo. "Serbia is an important NATO partner and this visit builds upon our already-strong relationship."
During the visit, Mojsilović received a detailed orientation of the organization, tasks, and missions of JFC Naples and toured the NATO Strategic Direction South HUB, in addition to his meeting with Foggo.
"I was pleased to accept Admiral Foggo’s invitation to visit his HQ at JFC Naples,” said Mojsilović. "Serbia is a reliable partner of NATO and we will continue to work together to promote stability in the Western Balkans.”
He has a previous tie to the Alliance, as from 2013 to 2017 he served as the Head of the Military Representative Office in the Mission of the Republic of Serbia to NATO.
Mojsilović advanced from the lowest soldiers rank to the rank of General of the Serbian Armed Forces. He performed duties from platoon leader to the commander of a service of the Serbian Armed Forces, mainly on command and operational posts in the commands and units.
JFC Naples’ mission is to prepare for, plan, and conduct military operations in order to preserve the peace, security, and territorial integrity of Alliance member states and freedom of the seas and economic lifelines throughout the Supreme Allied Commander Europe's Area of Responsibility and beyond.
