He had words of confidence and satisfaction both for the EUTM mission and for his soldiers, whom he urged to continue with a serious and sacrificial spirit in order to attain the goals that have been set.
Also General Addis, MFCOM of EUTM-S since 1 July, expressed appreciation for the commitment that the Somali army demonstrates in the daily work. Over the course of the last two years more than 2,000 soldiers have been trained to form infantry and engineer units.
The visit then continued inside the MIA, where the European mission is hosted, where the CDF has attended a briefing during which Gen Addis illustrated him all the results of the work done to date and the future programs.
This is the first visit payed by the Chief of Defence Forces to EUTM-S and there is a common understanding that the mutual cooperation between EUTM and SNA will grow steadily.
