Georgia: Joint military drills with NATO countries finish near Tbilisi

Georgia, Vaziani military base
September 18, 2020 at 23:02 GMT +00:00 · Published

The closing ceremony marking the end of the ‘Noble Partner - 2020’ joint drills of Georgia and several NATO countries was held at the Vaziani military base some 20 kilometres away from Tbilisi, Friday.

According to US Ambassador to Georgia, Kelly Degnan, who spoke at the ceremony, forces from Poland, France, and the United Kingdom alongside with Georgia and the US took part in the drills.

“The exercise is not just about developing interoperability of our forces, it’s also about sending clear messages about the ability to organise an exercise despite the pandemic and sends a clear message of deterrence to any aggressors,” she highlighted, adding that the event was “very successful.”

“The combined Life Fire exercise that you saw earlier today is a great example of how five nations can come here, can shoot, move and communicate and operate as one multinational force,” US Exercise Director of “Noble Partner – 2020” Col. Jason Fryman said.

The “Noble Partner -2020” exercise was hosted from September 1 till September 18 at Vaziani and Camp Norio training areas in Georgia. According to the US Embassy in Georgia, some 2,800 members of the military from Georgia, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States took part in the drills.
