Estonian Defense Minister favors the deployment of NATO equipment near the borders of the country

The Estonian daily newspaper Postimees reported that the Estonian Minister of Defense, Hannes Hanso, favored the deployment of NATO heavy military equipment near the country’s borders.

“We want NATO heavy military equipment to be deployed closer to Estonia rather than a thousand miles away from it. For our part, in alliance with Latvia and Lithuania, we will do our best to ensure simplified transportation of the units across the state border and provision of weapons to our allies,” Hanso noted.

The Minister also supported the proposal to increase military spending to the countries of the Eastern Wing of the Alliance.
