NATO Military Committee discuss current affairs at Brussels meeting

Adaptation to new challenges, military missions, defence and deterrence, and the situation in eastern flank related to Russia’s policy were the subject of the NATO Military Committee meeting attended by the Chief of the General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces, General Rajmund Andrzejczak.

On Tuesday, during the meeting in Brussels, “the chiefs of defence and chiefs of staff of the member states discussed the process of adapting the Alliance to contemporary challenges, as well as military operations and missions carried out under the auspices of NATO. The issues of strategic planning, including allied activities within deterrence and defence, were also discussed. Two sessions were devoted to the relations of the North Atlantic Alliance with Ukraine and Georgia,” the General Staff reported.

General Andrzejczak also met with the Commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Ruslan Chomczak. The bilateral meeting was an opportunity to discuss the security situation, in particular in the eastern parts of Ukraine. The generals touched on possible directions of cooperation at the military level.

In turn, the security in the Caucasus region and possible directions of cooperation in the military area were the topics of the talks held between the Polish Chief of Staff and the head of the Georgian Armed Forces, Major General Giorgi Matiashvili.

“The NATO Military Committee was an opportunity to assess the security situation on the eastern flank of the Alliance and present the Polish position on the aggressive military attitude of Russia, as well as discuss the Alliance’s deterrence and defence strategy,” the General Staff press release wrote.

During his stay at the NATO Headquarters, General Andrzejczak, on behalf of President Andrzej Duda and defence minister Mariusz Błaszczak, presented Polish soldiers with medals and decorations.

The NATO Military Committee, formed by the chiefs of defence of the member states, most often, the chiefs of staff, is the highest military body of the Alliance and serves as an advisory body on military issues to the North Atlantic Council – NATO’s highest political authority.
