“The USA is our most important ally, and the government is concerned with maintaining and further developing the strong security policy ties between our two countries,” Enoksen (SP) said in a statement to NTB.
On Monday, November 15, he travels to the United States to meet with US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.
Enoksen will, among other things, address relations with Russia and the increased military activity in Norway’s immediate neighborhood.
“I want to express our view on the developments in the High North and the increased Russian military activity.
“Our allies highly value our knowledge of Russia and the High North, and I want to address how Norway can contribute to stability in our immediate neighborhood,” he noted.
