On 6th December 2012, Andzejs Vilumsons – the Director of the Department of Security Policy in the Latvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs – visited the Baltic Defence College to discuss security and co-operation in the Wider Baltic region.
Several students from the Joint Command and General Staff Course participated to ask questions relating to research for their Independent Study Papers. They were joined by several members of academic and military staff. The event was a glowing success; participants engaged with Mr. Vilumsons for well over two hours to invoke his insights on the ‘Wider Baltic’. Consequentially, future seminars are planned in the future, with an outlook to inviting other officials from other Baltic States’ foreign and defence ministries.
