Stoltenberg made the statement at a meeting of NATO’s 29 defence ministers at its new Brussels headquarters. He said the exercise will simulate the defence of a member state from a fictional adversary, but the troops,  tanks, 70 ships, and 150 planes are headed for Norway, the North Atlantic and the Baltic. He added that the exercise is defensive, and it is transparent, adding that all members of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, including Russia, have been invited to send observers.
