The two-day conference will include ministers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

The agenda includes informal discussions on Nordic and Baltic participation in the operations of the UN, EU and Nato, as well as developments in the Middle East.

The informal meetings have been organised regularly since 1991. Finland hosted the meeting last year while next year’s gathering will be in Sweden.
