Split to host NATO Military Committee conference

NATO's highest military authority will meet in the Croatian coastal city of Split on Friday to discuss implementing the decisions taken by NATO heads of state or government at the alliance summit in Warsaw in July 2016 and will be hosted by the Chief of the General Staff of the Croatian Armed Forces, General Mirko Sundov.

NATO's Military Committee, consisting of chiefs of defence of the 28 member countries, will meet on September 16-18 and will be joined by their counterpart from membership aspirant Montenegro.

This is the first time that a meeting of NATO at that level will be held in Croatia, General Sundov told reporters on Thursday.

The Military Committee meets twice a year at NATO headquarters in Brussels and once a year they meet in an allied member country.
