Representatives from 24 countries came together to discuss plans to enhance peace and stability in the Arab world. President Bergtun was a keynote speaker at the event, which was hosted by WVF Member Association, The Jordanian Economic and Social Association of Retired Servicemen and Veterans. The meeting also included trips to the Dead Sea, the Zaatari refugee camp, and the Jordan-Syria border, highlighting Jordan’s unique geopolitical landscape. 

Delegates elected Maj. Gen. Ibrahim Magraby (Egypt) as the new President of the AVU. Maj. Gen. Magraby was also present at the 28th General Assembly of the World Veterans Federation held in September 2015 in Sopot, Poland, where he delivered a speech to the Assembly. We would like to congratulate Maj. Gen. Magraby, as well as the ensemble of the AVU, on this appointment, and wish him luck in this prestigious post.
