The defence minister Nicolai Wammen has signed agreements today at the NATO summit in Wales ensuring that the Danish armed forces will contribute to the NATO Alliance’s solutions in highly-prioritised areas.

The summit aims to ensure that NATO possesses the tools required to meet new strategic challenge and tackle exiting threats.

“The signing of the four documents today means that we have made sure that the Danish armed forces will contribute significantly to the Alliance’s problem-solving,” Wammen said in a press release.

“We underline that Denmark is a core nation in NATO and that we lead the way in terms of contributing to the Alliance’s high-priority areas.”
