Tunisian Armed Forces: Partnership Branch shapes 2019-2020 training
Apr 30, 2019

Tunis, 30 April 2019 - A NATO delegation met with representatives of all the Tunisian
Armed Forces (TAF) services in the Armed Forces Headquarters.
Known as an Expert Staff Meeting (ESM), the meeting was one of
two held annually between Joint Force Command Naples
Partnership Branch and the Tunisians and has, as its overall aim,
the role of correcting and adjusting  ongoing education, training,
exercises and education (ETEE) and continuing the process of
planning ETEE for next year.

The NATO delegation was led by Colonel Franck Faubladier of the
J9 MILCOOP Branch and included representatives from the
International Staff Defence Planning and Policy and the
International Military Staff from Brussels as well as the Chief of
Military Cooperation from LANDCOM, Izmir.

According to Faubladier the J9 Desk Officer from JFCNP attended
the 2019 Planning and Review Process (PARP) Assessment with
TAF the week prior and was thus able to bring the results of that
meeting directly to the ESM.

"The ESM  as conducted by our team is the perfect complement to
the Brussels-led PARP and the Defence Capacity Building Initiative
as we are able to discuss adjusting the training accordingly to the
very latest developments. In this case we were able to have very
detailed discussion about training and educating some of the
units which the Tunisians want to become fully interoperable
with NATO Forces.”

Tunisia joined the Mediterranean Dialogue partnership
framework in 1995 and is a key NATO partner. The ETEE portion of
Military Cooperation is directly managed through J9 MPB.
