We congratulate General Stephane Abrial on his assuming command of NATO’s Allied Command Transformation (SAC-T) in Norfolk today. This change of command is especially significant as General Abrial is the first European officer to serve as one of NATO’s two Supreme Allied Commanders.
France, a founding member of the Alliance and a significant contributor to NATO operations across the globe, is a key partner of the United States in pursuit of transatlantic security goals. We look forward to working with General Abrial as he pursues NATO reform goals in his role as SAC-T.
