The NRDC-ITA OLRT in the Republic of North Macedonia

The NATO Command successfully conducted an important liaison and reconnaissance activity in the context of Eagle Flight 23

Solbiate Olona, May 15, 2023. Based on the established initial cooperation for joint activities, an expert team from NRDC-ITA carried out a several-day working visit to the Army of the Republic of North Macedonia.

During the activity, the OLRT, led by Brigadier General Paolo Fortezza, held several meetings at the Army General Staff commands and units in order to observe and plan the next joint activities.

At the General Staff, General Fortezza had a working meeting with the Deputy Chief of General Staff, Major General Azim Nuredin, where they discussed the further activities based on the signed accession note of North Macedonia to the Memorandum of Understanding and Cooperation with NRDC-ITA.

Then, General Fortezza held a meeting with the State Secretary in the Ministry of Defense, Vladimir Anchev, on the same topic. At the Operations Command, he held a working meeting with the Chief of Staff, Brigadier General Mirche Gjorgovski.

During the visit, the representatives from NRDC-ITA held expert talks with representatives from the sections of the General Staff, where they discussed cooperation in the field of NATO operations and logistic support during exercises organized by the NATO Command in Milan.

The expert team also conducted a reconnaissance and tour of the Training Area Krivolak, as part of the preparatory activities for the organization of the joint exercise at this command post planned for 2025.

This visit intensifies a further cooperation, which began after last year's visit of the Chief of General Staff, Lieutenant General Gjurchinovski to this command and the working visit of the NRDC-ITA Commander, Lieutenant General D’Addario, in April this year.
