A group of students in visit at British Embassy Chisinau
The Information and Documentation Center on NATO in the Republic of Moldova, in partnership with the British Embassy Chisinau, organised a discussion session for a group of students interested in security and defence. The session on the UK and NATO was conducted by the UK’s Defence Attaché to the Republic of Moldova, Squadron Leader Rob Hall.
Students were interested to learn more about the UK’s role within NATO, as a founding member of the Alliance, as well as Her Majesty’s Armed Forces more broadly.
Topics included: the role the UK within the Alliance and lessons learned from NATO operations, the structure of the UK Ministry of Defence and its responsibilities in defending the UK and overseas territories, the promotion of the UK’s interests more broadly, including support to international peacekeeping efforts, and humanitarian aid. The group also discussed the UK’s financial commitment to NATO and global defence expenditure.
The event was organized on 4 April 2019, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the signing of the North Atlantic Treaty.
