Soini comments on the military drill with US

Foreign Affairs Minister Timo Soini commented on the military drill to be held this spring, in which US army vehicles will also participate. According to Minister Soini, Finland does not aim to show off. However, he pointed out that Finland has always been very keen to defend itself. When asked what kind of message the US army vehicles’ visit would send to Russia, Minister Soini said that the message is that Finland takes care of its own defence and looks after its competence. According to Minister Soini, Finland’s collaboration with the United States has increased but Finland is still in charge of its own defence.
