Newsletter October 2018
Earlier this month, during the NATO Defence Ministerial Meeting, we have received the final Alliance’s blessing on our full capabilities declared during NATO Summit. The NATO Secretary General has finally framed the NSD-S HUB in its natural "location" to monitor and understand regional threats, challenges and opportunities for NATO to cooperate. This gives us the confidence and trust we need to continue implementing our methodology and provide tailored contribution to the Alliance. New working challenges are ahead and we are reaching our standards in a timely and orderly manner receiving acknowledgments on our ability to respond to different inputs. Finally, I would also to take this opportunity to greet all of you, dear readers, and to thank my staff for the great effort and passion in this year of intense work. I would like also to express my gratitude to the whole JFCNP and in particular to Admiral FOGGO, JFCNP COM, to General PORTOLANO, JFCNP COS, and to all JFCNP Command Group for the indispensable support. In fact, I will soon take up a new post as Chief of Staff of the Command of the Southern Operational Forces of the Italian Army in Naples. My best wishes and congratulations to the new director and dear friend Brigadier General Ignazio LAX for this challenge. And, as we say in Italy, see you soon on other channels."
