On April 21, Ambassador Uyehara took part in a Helicopter Search and Rescue (SAR) event conducted by the United States Navy. The event was held to familiarize the Montenegrin Air Force personnel with the standard operating procedures for Search and Rescue Operations featuring squadron and detachment-size units. The exercise took place at the Golubovci Air Base in Podgorica.
At the event, Ambassador Uyehara said, “We have a very robust partnership with the Montenegrin Air Force and this relationship has provided for numerous military-to-military events, Foreign Military Financing projects, and educational opportunities. All of those examples show our commitment to the partnership between our countries and our unwavering support for Montenegro’s membership in the Euro-Atlantic community.”
