Military Strategic Partnerships Conference underway in Jordan

DEAD SEA, Jordan  - The Partnerships Directorate is currently holding their annual Military Strategic Partnerships Conference hosted by the Jordanian Armed Forces Ministry of Defence.

Representatives from 60 nations are participating in the conference, which is the 9th Conference on Partnership subjects and initiatives. The conference is traditionally hosted by a Partner nation. This is the first Partnerships Conference to be held in the Middle East, reflecting the importance of partners in the region and NATO’s 360-degree approach.

"The significance of Jordan providing a venue and facilities cannot be underestimated and I am very grateful for their support,’” said Major General Odd Egil Pedersen, Director Partnerships Directorate. "Jordan is a reliable and forward leaning partner who contributes to NATO’s continuous effort to maintain peace, mutual security and projecting stability.”

The conference provides a venue for Partnership briefings, key leader presentations and the opportunity for Partners to engage with staff officers and supporting headquarters. This year also marks the 25th Anniversary for the Partnership for Peace (PfP) programme and Mediterranean Dialogue frameworks.
