NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg visited Iceland’s capital Reykjavik on 11 June, where he met with Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir and discussed current security issues, including Russia’s breach of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, NATO’s adaptation to hybrid and cyber threats, and the situation in the High North.
During the meeting, Stoltenberg praised Iceland’s civilian contributions to NATO missions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo. He concluded that Iceland is a founding member of NATO, and underlined that its “strategic location in the Atlantic helps to bind Europe and North America together.”
