Pabriks: Russia’s aggression in Ukraine mobilizes NATO

«The deployment of a combat group led by Canada at Adazi base in Latvia serves as NATO’s direct reaction to Russia and its aggression in Ukraine. It is also a good signal to everyone who doubts the alliance’s ability to protect Latvia and other NATO member states from military threats,» says MEP Artis Pabriks.

He also notes that it also serves as proof of close relations between Latvia and Canada, which continue developing at an unprecedented rate.
 

Pabriks emphasizes that without Russia’s aggression in Ukraine, there would not have been a decision made at NATO Warsaw summit and Canadian forces with troops and military equipment would not have been provided to Latvia, he said.
 

«Russia’s aggression in Ukraine mobilizes NATO. The presence of the Canada-led force is clear and unambiguous proof of NATO’s unity and the alliance’s determination to deter Russia from aggression. It is also proof that Canada, in spite of different propaganda, has a powerful military potential. This is unique experience for Latvia. This is true looking at it from the perspective of military capabilities and residents’ perspective. We do feel support from our allies and their contribution to our country’s security,» Pabriks continues.
 

He also reminds that Latvia’s cooperation with Canada is not limited to security measures – there is also room for trade. The European Parliament reminds that CETA was finally signed this year. Artis Pabriks was responsible for its approval in the European Parliament. After the favourable vote Latvia was the first EU member state to ratify the document in its parliament.
 

«This year proves with various aspects that Latvia and Canada have close ties, and this has a positive effect on mutual relations between Latvia and Canada, as well as Canada and the EU. Latvia, as the first country to ratify CETA, clearly shows its support for Canada’s activities in the European region. Canada’s role in the international environment only increases,» Pabriks said.
 

He adds that Canada’s foreign policy stance is consequent and clear, whereas USA, for example, always focuses more on its domestic problems. «This is why I am particularly happy that Latvia cooperates with Canada on many different security and economic matters, strengthening Trans-Atlantic relations and values,» comments Pabriks.
