Security is built in solidarity with others, and threats against peace and security are averted in cooperation with other countries or organisations. The capability of acting within the frame of a joint, multinational operation is fundamental for operating in Sweden, in Sweden’s neighbouring region or in missions in more faraway locations. Our cooperation with NATO is key to the enhancement of our capabilities – both nationally and internationally.
ENHANCED NATIONAL CAPABILITIES AND STRENGTHENED COOPERATION
Sweden is contributing to Trident Juncture 18 by providing qualified troops from all Swedish Armed Forces combat forces. This exercise will enhance our ability to defend Sweden and our national capabilities, while also strengthening our cooperation with Finland, the US, Norway and NATO. Our naval and air forces will be preparing for their future participation in the rapid-reaction NATO Response Force (NRF) during the exercise, and Army troops will be on exercises to reinforce brigade capability. Host nation support will also be provided to NATO troops based in Sweden during the exercise.
