SE Europe Brigade marks 10th anniversary in Turkey

A ceremony took place in Istanbul Saturday to mark the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the South-Eastern Europe Brigade (SEEBRIG).

The ceremony was attended by military authorities from the member countries.

The South-Eastern Europe Brigade (SEEBRIG) consists of seven NATO and Partnership for Peace (PfP) nations: Albania, Bulgaria, the Republic of Macedonia, Greece, Italy, Romania, and Turkey. Believing that cooperation and dialog among the countries of South-Eastern Europe must be further developed, and considering their commitment to contribute to regional security and stability, their Ministers of Defense signed an Agreement on Multinational Peace Force South-Eastern Europe (MPFSEE) September 26, 1998.

In accordance with the agreement, the South-Eastern Europe Brigade (SEEBRIG) was established and activated August 31, 1999.
