Col Palazzi further said there is need for exchange visits between the Italian Defence Force and ZNS that will promote sharing of knowledge and expertise.
In his remarks,Lt Gen Solochi said Zambia and Italy share strong cordial and bilateral relations from time in memorial.
“ZNS looks foward to fostering ties with the Italian Defence Force through provision of training opportunities for ZNS personnel in Italy in various disciplines such as, Science, Technology, Military and Civil Courses” he said.
Lt Gen Solochi further indicated that ZNS is ready to collaborate with the Italian Defence Force saying the Service has a lot to learn and share for the mutual benefit of both Defence Forces.
