As reported by Belga news agency, Belgian Minister of Defense Ludivine Dedonder said: "We will also send non-lethal equipment for the winter, helmets, spare equipment, vision equipment. At the beginning of 2023, we will deliver ambulances and medical evacuation trucks. We are also involved in the training mission planned by the European Union. We remain available for maritime or land mine clearance, for which we have already provided training. But also for other training, such as that of snipers via our special forces. We are awaiting the decisions of the EU, promised for the end of September. We are also taking in 45 war wounded and seriously ill people."

New Belgian troops should also be deployed in mid-2023 at the NATO base located in Constanta, Romania, while the first Belgian forces sent there have been replaced by Dutch, as part of rotations.

"We should also redeploy 6 F-16s to Estonia, for which I will present a request in a few weeks to parliament and the government", Ludivine Dedonder added. "Finally, our mine hunter, the Narcisse, will be deployed in the Mediterranean ".
