Seven officers of the Jordanian Armed Forces took part in the training course on protection against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear weapons (CBRN) held in NATO Joint CBRN Centre of Excellence in Vyskov, the Czech Republic, from 17-21 June. The aim of the course was to train the JAF experts who would subsequently be responsible for further training of so called “first responders” to CBRN related incidents, both from military and civilian agencies.
Besides the JAF officers, also specialists from Egypt and UAE participated in the training. The course was organised in the framework of the Science for Peace and Security Programme of NATO.
Before their departure, the JAF officers were received by H.E. Ambassador of the Czech Republic to Jordan, Dr. Ivana Holoubkova, who underlined the ongoing and strengthening cooperation between the Czech Republic and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in military and security areas. The Ambassador emphasized as well the utmost importance of support to Jordan to face the challenges of the Syrian crisis next door- including the possible CBRN threats.
