CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY
Colleagues, I would like to inform the FSC that on 26st of January, Norway decided to cancel the notified exercise Joint Viking 2021 (CBM_NO_20_0013_F30_O).
The exercise was planned as this year’s main exercise, was notified as such according to Vienna Document plus (FSC) decision 9/12 and should have taken place in March.
The decision to cancel was taken as part of stricter measures to halt the recent outbreak of a mutant variant of Covid-19 in Norway.
The cancellation was notified to all OSCE participating states the 1st of February by notification CBM_NO_21_0002_F41_O
