Turkish military chief attends NATO meeting in Brussels

Turkish Chief of General Staff Gen. Yasar Guler on Thursday attended NATO’s highest meeting of military officers in Brussels.

On the sidelines of the meeting, Guler held separate bilateral meetings with Gen. Christopher Cavoli, supreme allied commander Europe (SACEUR), UK Chief of Defence Staff Adm. Tony Radakin, and French military Chief of Staff Thierry Burkhard, the Turkish Armed Forces said on Twitter.

Starting on Wednesday, the two-day meeting of the NATO Military Committee in Chiefs of Defense Session (MCCS) gathered the allied military chiefs to discuss issues of strategic importance to the alliance, including Ukraine, NATO's military capacity, and the Kosovo Force (KFOR).

The meeting was also attended by the chiefs of staff from Sweden and Finland, the two Nordic countries which last May formally applied to join NATO, abandoning decades of military non-alignment, a decision spurred by the Ukraine war that started in February 2022.
