"It was a
privilege to brief my Dutch peers on key operational activities within Allied
Command Operations' area of responsibility during their visit to SHAPE today," said
Dutch Brigadier General Nico Tak, Director of the CCOMC. "Keeping up-to-date with what is ongoing and
how the Alliance is responding is important for all NATO nations and partners,"
Military Representative of The Netherlands at SHAPE, Captain (N) Georges van
Aalst says "it's vital to promote the understanding of SHAPE as the "engine
room" of NATO; most, if not all, decisions on policy and plans for NATO are
being prepared or executed through SHAPE."
This is the
second such visit of a high level delegation from The Netherlands to visit
SHAPE in recent months.
