State head Justin Trudeau is facilitating a subsequent high-profile global guest this week, with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg showing up in Canada Thursday.
They are planned to visit a tactical radar site in Cambridge Bay, Nvt., denoting the initial time any NATO boss has visited Canada’s Arctic.
Senior Canadian and NATO authorities say the visit is intended to feature that the locale is a security need, considering Russia’s intrusion of Ukraine and issues connected with environmental change.
Quickly speeding up softening in the Arctic implies that the region is more open to partners, and to foes.
Stoltenberg’s last visit to Canada was in 2019, however he and Trudeau met at the NATO culmination in Madrid in late June.
Prior in the week, the top state leader was in Toronto and Newfoundland with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, whose visit was intended to reinforce the environmentally friendly power energy ties between the two nations.
