16. 11. 2011

The Joint Steering Board and the Joint Working Group for military medical cooperation between the Republic of Serbia and the Kingdom of Norway hold their regular annual consultation meeting at the Military Medical Academy in Belgrade. At the meeting hosted by the MMA’s head, Col. Prof. Dr. Marijan Novaković, the possibilities of further development of bilateral cooperation were reviewed, and the guidelines on further joint work were agreed. Particular consideration was given to the possibility of joint deployment of medical personnel to the UN-led peacekeeping missions, creation of regional cooperation project, and the establishment of the Regional Military Medical Training Center at the Military Medical Academy.

Within the bilateral consultation framework, the State Secretary Zoran Vesić received the Norwegian delegation led by the Deputy Political Director of the Kingdom of Norway Ministry of Defence Kjersti Klebo. The State Secretary Vesić expressed his appreciation for the support provided by Norway, as the Serbian strategic partner in the sphere of military medicine. Having reiterated how important the participation of the Armed Forces personnel in the UN mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT) as a part of the Norwegian contingent was to the Serbian Medical Services, he emphasized that it was crucial to continue with institutional dialogue through the work of the Joint Steering Board and Joint Working Group in the military healthcare area. The Serbian Armed Forces engaged its 41 members in the UN mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT) within 3 rotations through June 2009 to December 2010. The first two MoD and AF’s rotations were deployed to the Norwegian contingent, while the third rotation was engaged independently within the UN Role I Light Field Hospital.
