Disinfo: Finland cooperates with NATO in order to get territory in the Arctic


[Context: Trident Juncture 2018] Finland started a very close cooperation with NATO, as Helsinki claims a certain piece of territory in the Arctic. Therefore Finland has an economic interest in this case.


Finland has a wide-ranging and enhanced partnership with NATO.

NATO and Finland actively cooperate in peace-support operations and have developed practical cooperation in many other areas. Finland has no territorial claims in the Arctic.

Finland’s foreign and EU policy in the Arctic region is based on the cooperation conducted in the EU, the Arctic Council and the Barents Euro-Arctic Council as well as within the Northern Dimension Partnerships. The objectives of Finland's arctic policy are:

  • to strengthen multilateral Arctic cooperation
  • to take part in the shaping of the EU's Arctic policy
  • to raise Finland's profile as an expert in Arctic issues.
