General Vollmer thanked Admiral Bishop, on behalf of NATO, for his nation's active support to the NATO Response Force (NRF) and contribution to the enhanced military presence on NATO's Eastern Flank, where additional Canadian troops have been deployed.

Canada, as the framework nation of NATO's enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) Battlegroup in Latvia, has demonstrated its commitment to the transatlantic bond. The deployment of approximately 700 Canadian military personnel represents Canada's largest military presence in Europe since the early 1990s. Additionally, the Canadian Armed Forces have periodically contributed to NATO's Baltic Air Policing mission to preserve the security of Alliance airspace.

Throughout his visit, Admiral Bishop maximised the opportunity to meet with Canadian personnel at JFBCS in order to thank them for their contribution to the headquarters and their overall efforts.
