MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Keflavik Air Base is believed to be the only contribution of Iceland to NATO since the state has no standing army. The country's defenses are represented by the Icelandic Coast Guard, the National Security and Special Forces Units. There is a strong movement to withdraw from NATO in Iceland.
"From March 16 to mid-April 2017 the Italian Air Force is going to deploy six of its Eurofighter Typhoon fighter aircraft and a detachment of approx. 140 personnel to Iceland. The Italian detachment will be based at Keflavik Air Base, Iceland, and fly its fighter jets in support of NATO’s mission that provide Airborne Surveillance and Interception Capabilities to meet Iceland’s Peacetime Preparedness Needs," the statement of the NATO Allied Air Command said.
Iceland formerly hosted the US Naval Air Station in Keflavik through 2006 when the United States finally closed down the base.
