33 Montenegro soldiers will join a NATO-led military exercise ‘Trident Juncture 2018’ next month in Norway, the Montenegrin defense ministry told Pobjeda daily.
“These soldiers will have their own equipment, the G36 assault rifle and they are going to use vehicles TAM 110,” the Ministry reported.
Over 40,000 participants, about 130 aircraft and 70 vessels from 29 nations will take part in one of the largest military exercise during October and November in central and eastern Norway.
Trident Juncture 2018 will have an Article 5 (collective defense) scenario and will be under the command of Admiral James G. Foggo, Commander of Joint Force Command Naples.
NATO Alliance claims all OSCE member states have been informed about the event, adding that Moscow found out about the training at the last meeting of the NATO-Russia Council (NRC).
