Acting Deputy Secretary Victoria Nuland led the U.S. delegation that met with Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, and Sweden on the 20th anniversary of the Enhanced Partnership in Northern Europe (EPINE) framework.

Acting Deputy Secretary Nuland and her Nordic and Baltic counterparts reviewed regional and global priorities.  They agreed on the importance of continued support to Ukraine, keeping pressure on Russia to end its brutal war against Ukraine, welcoming Sweden’s accession to NATO as soon as possible, and strengthening European energy security.  Participants discussed Hamas’ appalling terrorist attacks on Israel and the need to support Israel’s right to defend itself against these heinous attacks.
