Estonian Ministry of Defense announced that the United States has allocated $175 million in military aid to the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania for the year 2020.

The Estonian Ministry of Defense said – in addition to ABC News – that, in addition to general military assistance worth $125 million, Washington allocated for the first time a separate budget item of $50 million to enhance the air defense capabilities of the three member countries in The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), which borders Russia.

“US military aid to the three countries to strengthen the position of deterrence and defense in the Baltic States”- Estonian Defense Minister

Estonian Defense Minister Juri Luik said – in a statement today – that the overall goal of US military aid to the three countries is to strengthen “the position of deterrence and defense in the Baltic States, including airspace, especially in the field of air defense”.

The statement added that “the (American) ally clearly confirms its commitment to the collective defense of the eastern side of Europe”, stressing that “the transition from air control to air defense requires a joint decision from all allies (in NATO), but the American position and practical support is of great importance”.

Bill to endorse the US national defense that provides aid to the Baltic countries was signed by US President Donald Trump last week

He noted that the appropriate air defense for the Baltic region must consist of an effective early warning system, surveillance capabilities, an anti-aircraft weapons system and qualified personnel.

The statement said that a bill to endorse the US national defense that provides aid to the Baltic countries was signed by US President Donald Trump last week, adding that the bill includes a solidarity clause affirming Washington’s commitment to the Baltic States.
