SIBIU, Romania – NATO-led annual Human Security in Operations Training kicked off on Monday, Nov. 7, 2022 at the Land Forces Academy in Sibiu, Romania.
The Commander of Headquarters Multinational Corps South-East (COM MNC SE), Major General Iacob Dragos-Dumitru, welcomed attendees and opened the event. “Protecting people is a fundamental operational requirement and will always be a challenge in multi-domain warfare. The war in Ukraine reflects daily, examples of little or no attention to human security in operations.”
The way we conduct defensive operations in NATO requires a full 360 degree and comprehensive approach. In war there are many aggressors including criminal factions and all aim to disrupt and destroy our collective values
Following an outline of the programme where organisations such as the Red Cross, the United Nations and UNICEF are represented, Major General Dragos-Dumitru stated, “The way we conduct defensive operations in NATO requires a full 360 degree and comprehensive approach. In war there are many aggressors including criminal factions and all aim to disrupt and destroy our collective values. This week will cover all aspects of human security including building integrity in our operations and I look forward to all of us learning from each other, and the experts represented, and leaving this event significantly wiser on this key function.”
