Fostering Long-Lasting Cooperation – International Committee of the Red Cross Visits JFC Brunssum

Brunssum, The Netherlands – Tuesday 13 September 2022, the Head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Delegation to the EU, NATO and the Kingdom of Belgium, Dr. Knut Dörmann, visited Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum (JFCBS).
Accompanied by Mr Chris Hall, the ICRC’s Senior Armed Forces Delegate to NATO and the EU, Dr. Dörmann used this opportunity to sustain the robust levels of cooperation that exist between the ICRC and JFC Brunssum, that date back to a Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2012 between Allied Command Operations (ACO) and the ICRC. The key areas for the ICRC and NATO ACO relationship include Operational Dialogue, Training and Education, and ICRC involvement in Doctrine and Policy development.

The ICRC is an impartial, neutral and independent organisation whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and the dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence, and to provide them with assistance. The ICRC also endeavours to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles.
Discussions between the ICRC delegation with General Guglielmo Luigi Miglietta, Commander JFC Brunssum and his staff focussed, amongst other things, on protection of civilians during conflict, protection of healthcare practitioners and facilities in armed conflict, and the provision of state support to parties of armed conflicts.
