"Consultations have begun," the Latvian National Armed Forces (NAF) spokesman told journalists. Graube did not disclose any dates for the UK military deployment or the scale of its presence.
Latvia has been a NATO member state since 2004. It currently hosts NATO personnel from Germany and the United States.
Russia, Latvia’s neighbor, has previously condemned the NATO buildup on its western border. Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov accused the US-led military bloc of using allegations about Russia’s aggression to justify its presence in the Baltic.
