Minister of Defense Odd Roger Enoksen (SP) believes that the exercise activity in the north should be better coordinated. Now, he wants to take up the matter with the United States.
Enoksen is in Washington on Tuesday, where he will meet US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
Enoksen told NTB that one of the issues he wants to raise with his American colleague is the need for better coordination of Allied exercise activity in the north.
“We have a desire to coordinate this better,” he noted.
Enoksen also wants to use the opportunity to inform the Americans about the new government’s defense policy, where great emphasis is placed on the High North.
In addition, Norway hopes for increased cooperation between Norwegian and American special forces.
