Military Review

The NATO will discuss the creation of two new commands

20
On Wednesday and Thursday, the NATO defense ministers will agree at the meeting to create two new commands in the structure of the alliance, as well as discuss the nuclear threat from the DPRK and the situation in Afghanistan. RIA News.




Earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the alliance intends to evaluate the effectiveness of its current command structure and check whether it meets current challenges.

On Wednesday, the ministers will approve a framework plan, which involves the creation of two new commands: "to protect maritime transport routes in the Atlantic to ensure the safe movement of forces from North America to Europe and to improve the infrastructure for the transfer of troops and equipment inside Europe."

According to the Secretary General, "the decision on the location of the new structures will be made at the meeting of the Alliance Defense Ministers in February 2018 of the year." The creation of new units will put an end to the reduction of command structures undertaken at the end of the Cold War.

Stoltenberg reminded journalists that “by the end of the Cold War, about 33 thousand people were involved in the 22 command”, while “now the number of personnel of the seven commands is about seven thousand”.

In addition, according to the Secretary General, now "in every military operation, in every possible and prospective military mission and operation of NATO there will be a cyber component."

The ministers will also discuss the threat from the DPRK.

Stoltenberg said that during a recent visit to Japan and South Korea he was convinced that "the threat from Pyongyang requires a global response." He stressed that "NATO is firmly defensive, has the necessary capabilities and must respond decisively to any aggression."

As for the policy of the NATO mission “Strong support” in Afghanistan, it will not actually change. The only significant change will be the increase in the contingent from the current 13 thousand to 16 thousand people, including by 50% due to the efforts of the United States.

    Let’s have more, more commands, officers and generals in headquarters. And they will devour money for a salary - unmeasured, and the security of our borders will increase.

      Somehow, initially the North Atlantic Alliance spread its influence to all oceans and all corners of the world. A navel will not tear? bully

    NATO has a rather difficult and confusing management system ... however, from our point of view, this is more a plus than a minus! laughing

      In NATO, there are more minuses for its structure than pluses. A scarecrow in a European garden. And the naivety of small NATO countries. That in the event of a threat to them, someone will carry chestnuts out of the fire for them. There is no security of individual small countries at the expense of others. Illusion. These are simply the interests of the large countries of the union in keeping small ones in the sphere of their interests.

    And so that all these commands command the same units. On the other hand - to crush united forces -
    also a brilliant idea. No matter how you look, the good news is today!

    Weapons will be required for the newly formed battalions and the supposedly deployed corps and divisions in their place. McCain is already rubbing his sweaty palms, there will be work on lobbying for new allocations for arms magnates. Yes, and Trump is already taking away bread from McCain, demanding to increase arms exports and bringing in American weapons to his allies.

    In the treaty itself, the notorious Fifth paragraph, according to which the country party decides how to respond to the threat of attack, then this decision must be approved by parliament. This is already a complicated bureaucratic procedure. And for the vast country of Macedonia, the attack could end in occupation in about 15 minutes. hi laughing

    involves the creation of two new commands

    We are already accustomed to how NATO is breeding, and you won’t confuse us with this. Let them cook whatever they want in their pots. The main thing is that we always have at hand an effective response to this breeding hydra.

    "The threat posed by Pyongyang requires a global response."

    Even the very existence of an independent country is a threat to NATO countries. After all, Pyongyang does not threaten to bomb someone simply because some country does not like it, but clearly says that nuclear weapons are a deterrent from any aggression. And there’s more than enough aggression from NATO countries and their allies.
