Deputy Chief of Defence Lieutenant General Zsolt Sándor recently held a bilateral discussion with Major General Joseph Patrick McGee, Commanding General, United States Army 101st Airborne Division.


The topics on the agenda of the discussion included the Russo-Ukrainian War and the situation of the Western Balkans region, which continues to have outstanding significance from a security perspective. The two delegations also talked about the Székesfehérvár-based Headquarters Multinational Division Centre (HQ MND-C), a NATO Force Structure entity, which is to achieve full operational capability (FOC) this year, and about the NATO enhanced Vigilance Activity Battle Group (eVA BG HUN), a multinational unit, which also has outstanding importance.

In what followed, Major General McGee also met with Brigadier General Balázs Szloszjár, who gave a presentation for him about the intended purpose and the tasks of the HDF General Staff Joint Operations Command and Control Centre.
