Finland to mull over participation in Estonian military exercise today

The President of the Republic of Finland and the Cabinet Committee on Foreign and Security Policy are on Friday scheduled to mull over the participation of Finland in a military exercise hosted by the Ämari Air Base in Estonia. Finnish Hornet jets are presently not expected to fly to the Ämari Air Base but instead take off for the exercise from airbases in Finland. Therefore, the exercise would see both American F-16 and Swedish JAS Gripen jets enter Finnish airspace.

“Thereby, everyone could participate in the exercise from their own airbases – Swedes from Sweden and Americans from Ämari,” explains Jussi Niinistö (PS), the chairperson of the Cabinet Committee on Foreign and Security Policy.
