MINOT (AP) — A top Norwegian military officer said he’s impressed by the Minot Air Force Base.
Gen. Harald Sunde toured the base’s 5th Bomb Wing and the 91st Missile Wing on Wednesday. Sunde is Norway’s chief of defense.
A Minot base spokesman said the tour was to strengthen the relationship between Norway’s Chief of Defense and the American Defense Department.
The Minot base is equipped with B-52 bombers and Minuteman III nuclear missiles. The Minot spokesman said Sunde expressed his appreciation for the “strategic deterrence” that the base provides.
