For a Credible Security Policy

About 140 guests of honor from politics, business and the Army were present at Convoy 2016. On Friday, Convoy was officially opened by Army Chief André Blattmann. On Saturday, National Deputy Thierry Burkart addressed a special parade. Both speakers congratulated the organizers and endorsed the character of the event.

Corps Commander André Blattmann (pictured above) judged Convoy as an important contribution to the culture of remembrance. „I am happy that here tradition, history and the present time are combined. We have to know the past and take care of the future.“ The security situation after the annexation of the Crimea and after the latest terror attacks in the middle of Europe is unstable and must therefore be observed carefully. „Who does not look after their own security will be at the mercy of history.“

National Deputy Thierry Burkart called for a credible security policy, which in the light of budget cuts for the Army that have been going on for years, seems more than doubtful.
