Thursday, May 5, 2022 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET
Arctic security is increasingly recognized as an important topic. As relations between NATO and Russia have deteriorated, the strategic importance of the Arctic and the North Atlantic has been underscored.
Norway – which shares a border and maritime boundary with Russia in the north – faces a more challenging security environment, with an increase in Russian military activity and modernized capabilities. Allied activity, presence, and exercises closely coordinated are ever more important. The Kingdom of Denmark is aware of great power competition between the United States and China, as well as security concerns for NATO. At the same time, both Norway and the Kingdom of Denmark have a range of foreign and domestic policy concerns as they safeguard their Arctic maritime and land domains, while working to ensure ”High North, low tension.”
