Exercise “Joint Resolve-18” successfully completed

From 5th of February to 16th of March, the Baltic Defence College (BALTDEFCOL) conducted an in-house exercise “Joint Resolve-18” (JR-18). The exercise was based on a new unique scenario focused on the NATO Article-5 operations.

The last day of the exercise involved final briefings and discussions on the current and future execution of the exercise. The Commandant of BALTDEFCOL, Major General Andis Dilāns noted in his closing remarks that the exercise was a success. In addition, JR-18 also offered many valuable insights for the future improvement.

Altogether, JR-18 had up to 140 participants from 15 countries. During the exercise, BALTDEFCOL received support from more than 30 external Subject Matter Experts, observers, trainers and mentors from Estonian Defence Forces, Estonian Defence League, Latvian National Armed Forces, Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian Ministries of Defence, Latvian Ministry of Interior, NATO Joint Warfare Centre, NATO Force Integration Unit in Estonia, NATO Strategic Communications Centre of Excellence, NATO Cyber Centre of Excellence, Polish Naval Academy and Royal Danish Defence College.

Thank you to BALTDEFCOL’s Staff members, students of the Joint Command General Staff Course 2017/2018 and former students of the Civil Servants’ Course. It is the high level of cooperation and collaboration of all participating Allies and Partners that helps to ensure that the set training objectives are met.
