In the coming months, liaison officers from several NATO member states will serve at the Headquarters. Lieutenant-Colonel Asle Strand is the first on the new job.
”I am here to prove that words are translated into action regarding the support to Sweden” he says.
Sweden’s and Finland’s applications for NATO membership are much appreciated in Norway, which has been a member since 1949.
”This is looking good. Sweden is already well-adapted to NATO procedures and used to the working methods”, says Asle Strand.
Sweden already has a liaison officer at the Norwegian northern headquarters, FOH, in Bodö.
