In Hungary, the Corps Commander appreciated the opportunity to meet with the Croatian Army MG Denis Tretinjak (Commander Multinational Division Centre). They both emphasized the necessity of promoting future cooperation between the two commands and confirmed the paramount importance of expanding regional partnerships across the Alliance. "The Central European area is crucial to the collective security of NATO's Northeast," LTG Wojciechowski said.
Headquartered in Székesfehérvár, Multinational Division Centre is built upon the Croatian, Hungarian and Slovak framework. Once operational, it will be integrated into the NATO Force Structure reinforcing the Alliance's readiness and defence capabilities in central Europe.
"The Division is a new chapter," the Corps Commander stated. At the same time, LTG Wojciechowski expressed his certainty that the Székesfehérvár-based command will work in concert with NATO Force Integration Unit Hungary and Nato Force Integration Unit Slovakia. "The establishment of the Division is another visible proof of the Allied commitment to central Europe," LTG Wojciechowski concluded.
