The Nordic Countries Develop Security Co-operation

Independent research will be made on how to develop Nordic co-operation in foreign affairs and security matters. The aim of the research is to investigate how to support Nordic co-operation in the fields of foreign affairs and security.

The Nordic Ministers of foreign affairs are behind the research and former Norwegian minister of foreign affairs, Thorvald Stolenbergs will lead it. The research is due to be completed by the end of the year. mbl.is reports.

After WWII there was talk among the Nordic countries to establish their own defense alliance, but after NATO was founded in 1949, all such plans were abandoned.

The Nordic Ministers point out that Nordic co-operation has turned out well through the years, and although the situations change over time, there is still the interest to develop it further.
