(NATO) – French troops arrive in Estonia – France deploys the first of 300 troops to Estonia as part of its contribution to NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence on its eastern flank. The French join part of a British-led multinational battlegroup, and are also contributing tanks, vehicles and artillery.

NATO’s enhanced Forward Presence will see four new deployments that bring multinational battalion-sized battlegroups into Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland to respond to changing security environments in the eastern part of the Alliance, as agreed at the NATO Summit in Warsaw in 2016.
