Wednesday, 5.4.2023 | Multinational Operations
Ceremony on the occasion of sending off the Serbian Armed Forces contingent to the European Union mission for the training of the Central African Republic security forces was held today at the Peacekeeping Operations Center in the "Banjica" barracks in Belgrade.
Our contingent that will spend the next six months in this European Union military operation includes a staff officer on duty as the chief of the medical service and a six-member medical team that will be in charge of preventive health care and outpatient treatment of members of the international forces. They will replace the medical personnel of the Serbian Armed Forces, who have been deployed in the Central African Republic since October last year.
Today's send-off was attended by the Chief of Operations Directorate (J-3) of the Serbian Armed Forces General Staff, Lieutenant General Želimir Glišović and the Ambassador of the European Union to the Republic of Serbia, His Excellency Emanuele Gioffrè.
The Serbian Armed Forces began deployment in the European Union mission in the Central African Republic in 2016. By deploying in peace operations, both of the United Nations and the European Union, the Serbian Armed Forces, apart from building and preserving peace in the world, actively contribute to strengthening the foreign policy position of our country.
