Italian Defense Chief of Staff Admiral Giuseppe Cavo Dragone will be the next Chairman of the Atlantic Alliance Military Committee, replacing Dutch Admiral Robert Bauer in January 2025. "I am particularly pleased and proud that, today in Oslo, the NATO Chiefs of Defense appointed Admiral Giuseppe Cavo Dragone as the successor to the current Chairman of the Atlantic Alliance Military Committee" reads a note from Italian Defense Minister Guido Crosetto.

The succession will take place in January 2025, when Admiral Bauer will complete the activities of his term and Admiral Cavo Dragone will conclude his tenure at the helm of the Italian Defense Staff in November 2024.

"Also on behalf of Italy, I am deeply honored to receive this prestigious assignment, which I will carry out with unwavering commitment to the success of the Atlantic Alliance and the affirmation of its founding values, freedom and democracy," said Cavo Dragone. "NATO is able to offer its full support to Ukraine and the challenges facing it on an international scale. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Admiral Bauer for his outstanding work, which will inspire me."
