The Northern Group is a forum for discussion on security and defence issues between representatives of the twelve participating countries: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and the United Kingdom (UK).
On 9 June, the defence ministers of the Northern Group took part in a video conference to discuss the regional security situation, as well as aspects of green defence.
“The Northern Group is a strategically important forum for Sweden that contributes to a better understanding of the security situation in our region” says Swedish Minister for Defence Peter Hultqvist.
The Northern Group was launched by the UK in 2010.
