First Belgian F16 Mission in Iraq

U.S. Ambassador to Belgium Denise Campbell Bauer expressed her appreciation for the first mission that the Belgian F16s flew in Iraq as part of the international coalition’s efforts against ISIL. Ambassador Bauer said, “The participation of Belgium, which has already been an important contributor to NATO’s operations in Afghanistan and in Libya, demonstrates Belgium’s commitment to an international response to a global challenge.  We are proud to stand shoulder to shoulder yet again with Belgium and our other coalition partners to defend our common security.”
