Danish frigate will support French carrier
Next week, Danish Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen will report to France’s president Emmanuel Macron that the government wishes to send a Danish frigate to a French carrier battle group in the spring of 2019 . This action is part of the Danish- French safety political cooperation, which France invited Denmark to participate in.
"It is good for the Royal Danish Navy to send a frigate to a French carrier battle group. It helps develop our own capabilities and strengthens our cooperation with the French navy defence. By participating we are better prepared to handle threats made against European security. At the same time there is also considered a pad on the back to the skilled people in the Royal Danish Navy, that the French side have invited us to join the carrier battle group, "says Defence Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen.
