Around 4,000 Romanian and other NATO troops along with 500 technical means will participate in multinational exercise NOBLE JUMP 2017 (NOJP17) that will take place in Greece, Bulgaria and Romania over May 26 to June 16.

“Noble Jump 2017 is an important NATO exercise that allows us to demonstrate interoperability within the Alliance. I appreciate the support of Greece, Bulgaria and Romania as host nations and their close cooperation so that NOJP17 demonstrate that our skills, knowledge and experience are at the highest level” stated Admiral Michelle Janine Howard, Commander of Allied Joint Force Command Naples, in charge of NATO's Rapid Reaction Force in 2017.
