Tarih: Issue 59 - March 2015

Defence Turkey: You are assigned as the Commander of NATO LANDCOM in Izmir. First of all we would like to congratulate you in your new mission.  Could you please inform us about the vision, mission and structure of NATO LANDCOM?

Thank you.  I see Allied Land Command’s mission as 2-fold.  In crisis, this command is prepared to provide mission command of NATO Land Forces in support of the Joint Force Commands to accomplish the Allied level of ambition.  In peace, this command provides land expertise in support of Alliance Land Forces’ capabilities, readiness, interoperability and standardization.  The bottom-line is that we are focusing all our energy and effort to ensure NATO Land Forces are effective, interoperable and successful in full spectrum operations at all levels.
