“Containment of the threat in the region” is called the reason for opening another base for British “commandos” (special forces) in Norway. The opening of the new base was announced by the Royal Navy of the United Kingdom.
“The new Arctic Operating Base will support British Commandos over the next ten years as the UK underlines its commitment to security in the High North,” the Navy said in a statement.
The base of Camp Viking (“Viking Camp”), located 40 km from the Norwegian city of Tromsø, is able to accommodate the complete composition of the British Coastal Rapid Response Group (Littoral Response Group, LRG). The base is ideally located to “contain threats in the region”. It is designed so that the “commandos” can react quickly if necessary to protect the northern flank of the North Atlantic Alliance, as well as Norway, its ally.
As the Public News Service wrote, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh reported that the United States and Norway have been running covert operations since the Vietnam War.
