Norwegian and Russian military officials to meet in Kirkenes

Norwegian and Russian military officials to meet in Kirkenes

Norwegian and Russian defense leaders will meet this week in Kirkenes. The meeting is the first in two years.

Lieutenant General Yngve Odlo, who is head of the Armed Forces’ operational headquarters (FOH), will meet Lieutenant General Stanislav Maslov, who is head of the FSB’s border directorate.

The corona pandemic has made it demanding to hold physical meetings between the delegations, so this will be the first protocol meeting between FOH and the FSB’s border directorate since October 2019, the Armed Forces stated in a press release.

There is talk of specific challenges related to common challenges within border cooperation, rescue services, and fisheries management.

“There is still an agreement between the delegations that the challenges in the Barents Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and on the border must be solved through open communication channels and a continuation of the agreements entered into between Norway and Russia,” the press release states.
