During the visit, the benefits of the established cooperation between the two institutions and the next steps for its deepening were discussed. In the discussions on the cooperation between the two countries, several opportunities were highlighted with an emphasis on progress in partnership in the implementation of the security-defense project Summer Campus, which gathers cadets and students from more than 20 countries of the world during the summer period for more than a decade.
