As likeminded partners #NB8🇱🇻🇱🇹🇪🇪🇫🇮🇸🇪🇳🇴🇩🇰🇮🇸 take joint action to build up our defence capabilities. Production of #Patria 6x6 armoured personnel carriers in Latvia is an excellent example of Nordic-Baltic cooperation in strengthening our region. pic.twitter.com/vAjqxxJng6— Krišjānis Kariņš (@krisjaniskarins) September 7, 2023
Latvia has assumed the coordination of NB8 cooperation in 2023. Latvia’s priorities in the NB8 coordination effort are related to the strengthening of a rules-based international order, military security and deterrence capabilities, and resilience.
