U.S-European military leaders in Arctic security forces Roundtable forum

Promoting security and cooperation in the Artic region has been long the United States foreign policy. 

In late November the military leaders, representing the North America and Europe, attended in the 13th Roundtable forum of the Arctic Security Forces, to discuss a comprehensive range of critical issues. The forum was held virtually and its main objectives were: 

  • To address the Arctic awareness; security, challenges and stability
  • To build a closer partnership and cooperation in the Arctic region

Founded in 2010 by U.S. European Command and the Norwegian Defence, the Arctic Security Forces Roundtable (ASFR) is a military forum scheduled twice a year. One with the participation of the military leaders from the Arctic nations: Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden or the U.S.  And the second one with the observer nations: France, Germany, the Netherlands or the United Kingdom. 

The ASFR addresses the present and emerging challenges, and promotes military cooperation in the Arctic region.
