The meeting served as an excellent opportunity to continue these well-established relations and was conducted in order to inform the US representative on the COE’s progress made so far, its current and future work, as well as to explore any other potential ways of future common efforts.
The NATO MW COE Director, COL Boštjan Blaznik, with his staff, briefed the guest on the centre, and its areas of work, highlighting the COE’s particular feature of a hub for mountain warfare.
