    16 NATO member states, including Latvia, and three partner countries agree on joint ammunition procurements

    RIGA, July 12 (LETA) - Latvian Defense Minister Raimonds Bergmanis (Greens/Farmers) during the NATO summit in Brussels signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Multinational Cooperation for the Provision of Land Battle Decisive Munitions, the Defense Ministry said.

    The Memorandum of Understanding was also signed by Belgian, Danish, French, Estonian, Italian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Montenegrin, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and German defense ministers. After the signing of the Memorandum by Austrian and Finnish defense ministers, the number of countries cooperating on joint ammunition procurements will reach 16 NATO Member States and three partner countries.

    Belgium is the leading partner of the Memorandum of Understanding on Multinational Cooperation for the Provision of Land Battle Decisive Munitions procurement scheme. The Memorandum of Understanding provides the necessary legal framework for implementation of various joint land battle ammunition procurements and storage arrangements between partner countries. This initiative will deepen the military cooperation between the partner countries. It will also ensure the efficiency of such arrangements and will reduce the ammunition costs.

    As reported, Latvian Defense Minister Raimonds Bergmanis and Latvian Chief of Defense Lieutenant General Leonids Kalnins are currently attending the NATO Summit, which takes place in Brussels on July 11-12.
