Enhanced Forward Presence

  • NATO is enhancing its forward presence in the eastern part of the Alliance, with four multinational battalion-size battlegroups in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, on a rotational basis.
  • These battalion-size battlegroups, led by the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and the United States respectively, will be robust, multinational, combat-ready forces demonstrating the strength of the transatlantic bond, and making clear that an attack on one Ally would be considered an attack on the whole Alliance.
  • It is part of the biggest reinforcement of Alliance collective defence in a generation.
  • NATO is also developing a tailored forward presence in the southeast of Alliance territory with a land element built around a multinational framework brigade, under Multinational Division Southeast in Romania and coordinated multinational training through the Combined Joint Enhanced Training Initiative.
  • NATO Is also increasing its presence and activity throughout SACEUR's Area of Responsibility in order to address security issues wth a 360 degree perspective for the Alliance.
