The Spanish Liaison Team in Senegal conducts activities on NBC Healthcare and Transportation of Hazardous Cargo

June 11, 2021
  • After a break in regular activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic, training programmes are back to normal

After a few months' pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Cooperative Security activities in support of the Senegalese Armed Forces have resumed. The Spanish Liaison Team is currently conducting five training activities simultaneously.

The aim of these activities is to create synergies through stability in the region. Two of the activities currently being carried out are training in the transport of dangerous goods - which will allow forces to be deployed where they are needed in compliance with current regulations - and Combat Medicine in NBC environments.

In recent years, the Spanish Armed Forces have increased their presence on the African continent within the framework of Cooperative Security. This presence is part of the Defence Diplomacy Plan and is materialised through a series of activities, conducted by the Operations Command, based mainly on dialogue and cooperation.
