Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work was set to discuss security challenges with the Baltic and Nordic countries during his two-day visit to Finland, DoD News reported Friday.

Lisa Ferdinando writes Work’s visit focused on defense cooperation and regional alliance amid threats arising from Russia’s behavior in the Baltic Sea.

“This is a chance for us really just to exchange views on Russia, talk about areas of cooperation and explore — when we add Sweden — more that we can do in a trilateral sense,” Work told DoD News.

Soon after his arrival in Finland, the report said Work observed as Finnish troops conducted a beach assault and hostage rescue mission and toured onboard a jet-powered Rauma-class missile boat in Helsinki.

The U.S. deputy defense secretary seeks to establish an agreement for cooperation with Finland and Sweden, Ferdinando writes.
