General Philippe Lavigne, NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander Transformation, met with Major General Ivica Kinder, the current NATO Military Intelligence Committee Chair, October 13th 2021.
Major General Kinder has already visited NATO’s Allied Command Operations in Mons, Belgium; the NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance Force in Sigonella Airbase, Italy; as well as the NATO Intelligence Fusion Centre and the Counter-Terrorism Centre in RAF Airbase Molesworth, United Kingdom, as part of the national Campaign plan in order to promote and facilitate the implementation of the Alliance’s Intelligence Strategy. The visit to NATO’s Allied Command Transformation [in Norfolk, Virginia] represents a final endeavor of the Croatian Military Intelligence Committee Chairship, with the intention to expand NATO Intelligence perspective, and to actively include all the relevant strategic components of the Alliance in the ongoing intelligence efforts, in order to build up the capabilities for the efficient response to the contemporary global challenges imposed on the member states.
Allied Command Transformation harnesses innovative principles to enhance NATO’s ability to respond to threats with a speedy and agile military instrument of power. It ensures that NATO’s war fighting capabilities remain relevant, provides an indispensable understanding of current and future security challenges, and contributes to the development of NATO doctrine, concepts and interoperability standards. The Command is also responsible for NATO’s training and education programmes.
