Prior to the forthcoming Nato summit meeting, says the secretary of defense, that she works for more money for defense.
In the beginning of december, meet state leaders and defence ministers of the Nato-summit in London.
The last meeting was marked by the president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump, gave a tremendous challenge for other countries that do not live up to the target of spending two percent of gdp on defense. As well as that Europe is not doing enough for our own security.
Defence minister Trine Team (S) says to the fylde, to the UNITED states and Donald Trump have partially right in their criticism, and that she will work for both to increase the Danish engagement and the defence budget.
- the Way they (USA) do it is not stylish or beneficial for something, but the content of the message is reasonable, says Trine Team to the newspaper and says about increased european involvement in private security:
- There has Sultanbet been much discussion about Trump, but he actually has the right, when it comes to the security of Europe, we have more to send soldiers out - even when it becomes difficult
- the Rhetoric is harder. Trump has his own way to do it. But I will say that when it comes to Europe to make up in the world, he has a point, says Trine Team to New York.
To the newspaper she says that she will work for the participation of Denmark in the future missions and increases its defence budget. Not least in order to play a greater role in security in the Arctic.
- We are going to put us in the forefront of efforts to strengthen security in the Arctic in order to show that we have understood the seriousness of the threat from China and Russia. We come up with concrete suggestions on where we increase the monitoring by using radar, satellites and aircraft, the minister says to the fylde.
If Denmark is to up to spend two percent of gdp on defense in 2024, the government must find 17 billion dollars extra, writes the newspaper.
Trine Team do not think that Denmark will reach right up there. But a group composed of the ministry of defense, Ministry of foreign affairs and the ministry of Finance must look at how the defence budget can be increased. Among other things, by looking at where spending can be counted as not being reckoned with today.
