Southern Exercise Portfolio 2021

U.S. European Command (USEUCOM) exercises enable Allies and partners to respond more effectively to regional crises and to meet their own security needs. In 2021, USEUCOM looks to execute exercises within the SOUTHERN EXERCISE PORTFOLIO (SEP) 21, which continue to demonstrate U.S. support to NATO and its focused commitment to deterring Russian aggression.

As with all USEUCOM exercises, SEP21 exercises are defensive in nature, completely transparent, and follow international norms and laws.

Between March and August 2021, USEUCOM components will join Allied and partner nation forces from more than two dozen countries to conduct 11 NATO-led and USEUCOM Joint Exercise Program (JEP) exercises in approximately 15 countries/regions.
