Hungarian National Staff College Calls into JFC Brunssum

The JFC Brunssum Assistant Chief of Staff "Operations”, Brigadier General Claude GOUDEAU (French Army), welcomed the a group of students and staff  from the Hungarian National Staff College.16 Students and instructors led by retired General, Zoltan SZENES, a former Hungarian Chief of General Staff, visited the HQs to receive briefings on NATO concepts, operational processes, current activities and challenges, and the JFC Brunssum working structure.

In his remarks, Brigadier General GOUDEAU touched upon the primary roles of the headquarters: the NATO Response Force (NRF) where JFC Brunssum is fulfilling its 2016 Standby Command role; the Resolute Support mission in Afghanistan where JFC Brunssum is the out-of-theatre operational-level command; and Regional Focus where the headquarters continually enhances and sustains working relationships with NATO and non-NATO nations as well as crisis-focused organisations in northern Europe.  
Brigadier General GOUDEAU grasped the opportunity to emphasize the prominent role played by Hungary, as a valuable ally, in fully contributing to NATO’s missions, as depicted by their excellent and sustained contribution to Resolute Support (Afghanistan) and to the Baltic Air Policing mission.
