General David Petraeus, Commander of United States Central Command will speak at RUSI's high profile Land Warfare Conference on 9 June 2010. He will take part in a session examining the UK's role in partnerships and alliances. General Petraeus' contribution comes at a time when there is a renewed focus in the UK's Ministry of Defence on partnerships, as outlined in the recently published Defence Green Paper, which highlighted ever-closer co-operation between US and UK forces in Afghanistan.
General Sir David Richards, Chief of the General Staff, will open the conference with a keynote presentation on 8 June and a summation on 9 June.
