MONS, Belgium – Three Generals from the Jordan Armed Forces General Command Headquarters visited Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, on Tuesday, 27 October 2015.
The Generals met with their counterparts in the Military Partnership Directorate and discussed the effectiveness of existing and previous Jordan-NATO partnering programmes and where improvements can be made. The discussions were a good opportunity to enhance cooperation with Jordan, and reflect how NATO can tailor capacities to Jordan necessities in the Defence and security Capacity Building (DCB) area.
Jordan Brigadier General Fahed Al-Damen stated, “The visit programme and open discussions were a great example of the valuable and characterized relationship between the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and NATO. Within this context, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan’s policy is based on the strengthening of ties and enhanced cooperation in all relevant fields and sectors with NATO to better serve and ensure the regional and global security.”
Brigadier General Al-Damen also expressed his sincere gratitude to Deputy Supreme Allied Command Europe, General Sir Adrian Bradshaw, for meeting with them, adding he was extremely satisfied and thankful for NATO’s support and the overall success of the staff talks.
Jordan is currently a significant friend in an unstable area, a close partner on the front line against ISIL and has been a successful contributor to NATO operations (KFOR, ISAF and maritime operations). Jordan’s contribution to the Resolute Support Mission, as well as its participation in the NATO Response Force (NRF) and Trident Juncture 2015 were also discussed during the two-day visit.
