US and Norway Sign Agreement Allowing Permanent US Military Bases to Be Established on Norwegian Territory

51

It became known that today an agreement on military cooperation was signed between Norway and the United States. Recall that Norway, like the United States, is a NATO member. At the same time, Norway borders on the Russian Federation.


According to the latest information, the agreement signed by the two countries provides an opportunity for the American military to establish their permanent bases on Norwegian territory. In particular, it is indicated that for such purposes, three Norwegian airfields (airports) and one seaport can be used, on the territory of which the base of the naval forces of Norway itself is already located.

The agreement prescribes the possibility of creating American military infrastructure on the territory of these facilities. The Western press writes about it.

Previously, there was an agreement between the United States and Norway on the joint activities of the armed forces. At the same time, the United States did not have permanent and separate military bases in Norway. The new agreement provides for the de facto independence of American military bases on Norwegian territory after the creation of such.

The final step, which will open the door to new opportunities for Americans in Norway, will be the ratification of the agreement by the Norwegian parliament. At this stage, the document is going to be sent for consideration by the Scandinavian parliamentarians. At the same time, experts have practically no doubts that the agreement with the United States will eventually be ratified.

This agreement itself can be viewed in the context of continuing efforts to bring NATO's military infrastructure (and specifically, the infrastructure of the US Army) closer to Russian borders.

      Why relocate something to the Kola Peninsula, if there is already a lot of everything.
      Arkhangelsk Oblast needs to be equipped as a second echelon.

        There is nothing to relocate there yet - there is no Fleet.
        And with the delivery of the ships under construction and those undergoing modernization, there are also delays.
        And without the Navy, such ventures are hopeless ... But it would be very nice.

          The Norwegian Coast Guard continues to arrest Russian ships, with such incidents on the rise lately. Until recently, two or three Russian trawlers a year were consistently under arrest, but since last autumn, our northern neighbors have clearly raised their plans: over the past six months, seven of our vessels have been forcibly escorted to Norwegian ports. Nor are the warships of the Northern Fleet, which have recently resumed combat duty in the Spitsbergen area, are rescuing,
          ... And if until recently only trawlers and seiners were subject to compulsory detention, now it has come to dry cargo ships that have nothing to do with the controversial herring at all.

            If you follow the Norwegian fishing rules, there will be no arrests of vessels. And they have the toughest in the world. News from the Federal Agency for Fishery, two weeks ago, in the Barents Sea in the Russian zone, fishing companies with foreign authorized capital of no more than 25% will be allowed. And the delivery of the catch to Russian ports. In the Norwegian zone, you can even hand over to aliens. You have outdated information. Not "calling ships" to work in the Russian zone, are given a year for registration under the Russian register. Quotas will be allocated only to ships with a Russian flag and delivering products to the ports of Russia. You have old information
