Friday, 6.10.2023 | Multinational Operations
A ceremony was held in the Peacekeeping Operations Center today on the occasion of sending off the Serbian Armed Forces medical team to the European Union military operation for the training of the security forces of the Central African Republic.
Our contingent that will spend the next six months in this mission includes a staff officer as the chief of medical service and a six-member medical team that will be in charge of preventive health care and outpatient treatment of members of multinational forces. They will replace the doctors and medical technicians of the Serbian Armed Forces who have been deployed in the same tasks in the Central African Republic since April this year.
The ceremonial send-off was attended by the Chief of the Operations Directorate (J-3) of the Serbian Armed Forces General Staff, Major General Tiosav Janković and Deputy Head of the Delegation of the European Union in the Republic of Serbia, Plamena Halačeva.
The Serbian Armed Forces started participation in the mission of the European Union in the Central African Republic in 2016, and at the moment it deploys its forces and resources in two more European missions.
By participating in military operations that are implemented within the framework of the European Union Common Security and Defense policy, members of the Serbian Armed Forces make their contribution to strengthening mutual trust with EU member states and improving the foreign policy position of our country.
