Toronto (Canada), May 12 (EFE) .- Canada will strengthen its presence in Latvia by sending one general and six officers to NATO’s northern multinational division headquarters at the Latvian military base in Adaci, where Spanish troops are stationed. Also discovered.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Thursday that he would send senior officials to Latvia following a meeting in Ottawa with Latvian Prime Minister Chris Janis Karins, who is on an official visit to Canada.

Trudeau told a news conference that the deployment of the Canadian army and the strengthening of NATO’s capabilities in the Baltic states was the result of Latvia’s demand to face the Russian threat.

For his part, Karens confirmed that Latvia takes its security very seriously and that the Russians’ message to Russia is that their country “does not even think about coming in this direction.”

Canada has already stationed 700 soldiers in Latvia as part of Operation Resurrection.

In addition, both Trudeau and Karins expressed their support for Finland’s integration into NATO, which today described Moscow as a threat to Russia.

The Canadian prime minister said the need for the federation to take a firm stand against Russia would be discussed at a meeting of NATO leaders in Madrid at the end of June.

Trudeau explained that NATO nations felt the need to evaluate their defensive stance against possible Russian incursions. He also noted the atrocities committed by Russian troops against civilians in the Ukrainian city of Pucha.
