On 20-21 October 22, the NATO Military Committee was in Türkiye to visit the Allied Land Command (LANDCOM), the NATO Rapid Deployable Corps Türkiye, the Multinational Joint Warfare Centre and the Maritime Security Centre of Excellence.
“Throughout our visit, we have been able to observe first-hand how Türkiye is contributing to NATO’s readiness, not only by hosting NATO entities like LANDCOM and the NRDC-T, but also by facilitating opportunities for forces to train and become better. We are stronger together, thanks to the commitment and contributions of our Allies”, highlighted the Chair of the NATO Military Committee.
The programme concluded with briefings at the Maritime Security Centre of Excellence (MARSEC COE). “NATO Allies contribute expertise, forces and capabilities to help deter and defend as well as counter threats, including in the maritime domain. Together, we uphold the freedom of navigation, secure maritime trade routes, and protect the sea lines of communication. Maritime security is critical to NATO as a transatlantic Alliance including Arctic waters, Baltic, Mediterranean and Black Sea, underlined Admiral Bauer. The MARSEC COE is a centre for academic research as well as multinational hub that provides practical training in the field of maritime security to NATO and Partner Nations.
