Chief of the Defence Force hosts visiting Defence Chiefs
9 February 2018
The Chief of the Defence Force, Air Chief Marshal Mark Binskin, and New Zealand Defence Chief, Lieutenant General Tim Keating, have co-hosted a number of Defence Chiefs in Sydney, Canberra and Wellington for a series of bilateral and multilateral meetings this week.
The Chiefs met to discuss broader global security, including the ongoing campaign against Daesh in Iraq and Syria, regional security issues, and defence engagement.
Air Chief Marshal Binskin also met with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph F Dunford Jnr, in Sydney ahead of the US General’s visit to Darwin.
The meetings built on Air Chief Marshal Binskin’s recent discussions with counterparts at last month’s NATO Chiefs of Defence meeting.
During their respective visits to Canberra, General Marc Compernol (Belgium), General Bjørn Bisserup (Denmark) and Admiral Haakon Bruun-Hanssen (Norway) also attended the Last Post Ceremony at the Australian War Memorial.
