Defense Attaches from ally nations descend on Iceland

We co-hosted a reception with my colleagues from Canada, France, Germany, Finland, and the United Kingdom to welcome a group of Defense Attaches from those countries as well as Italy, the Netherlands, and Finland. The group is visiting Iceland as part of what is becoming a yearly visit to Iceland to meet with the Icelandic Coast Guard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of the Interior, and Search and Rescue institutions. It is great to see this group of like-minded officers working together to learn about the latest developments in Iceland and to touch based with key Icelandic institutions.
