The observant reader will of course point out that there is a considerable terrain difference between Norway and the Baltic countries!
Yeees, but there is no need to annoy the Russians too much by actually carrying out this exercise right on the Russian border and in countries with considerable Russian minorities.
Thank you for explaining, Muhler. Do you believe the attendance of the head of state and the heir to the throne is significant politically speaking?

No, not really.

It's merely to say hi to the troops and give them a pad on the shoulders for a job well done.
It's also a welcome and thank you to soldiers from other NATO countries.

It would be totally different if President Trump or the US Vice President went to the exercise. That would be a significant political signal.

Thanks iceflower!

About Zerokonferansen (The Zero Conference).


As for the ''Trident Juncture 2018'' military exercise:

I posted some English articles about it in this thread.

Also important to mention (since I continues to receive questions about who decides what, when it comes to royal duties) that the attendance of the King and CP was at the request of the government.

Read a bit more about royal duties in post 350.
The Queen is the most wonderful, forgiving, non judgmental person I know. Sarah Ferguson speaking in 2011.
