The cross-party deal marks a positive transformation of Danish military investment, said Rasmus Jarlov, the defense spokesman for the right-wing conservative Folkeparti (DKP). “We welcome the outcome of the political negotiations in favour of the Danish defence sector and the support given to the agreement between the political parties in the Danish Parliament. The agreement brings Denmark closer to achieving NATO`s defence investment and spending targets. After Russia`s annexation of Crimea, frustration became political. The Obama administration successfully insisted on formalizing the agreement reached at the Riga summit in 2006 that allies would “seek” to reach 2 percent of GDP for defense by 2024. This promise was implemented in the 2014 Wales Summit Declaration. In meetings with allies, Deputy Defence Minister Robert Work stressed that “our basic policy is that we want each NATO member to spend 2% of its gross national product on national defence.” ==U.S. ambassadors and officials reaffirmed this message in Copenhagen. Most of Denmark`s neighbours have answered the call, with the Baltic states, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, former Warsaw Pact members Poland, Romania and Bulgaria, neighbouring Nordic Norway and even non-NATO Sweden, each increasing their defence budgets. WASHINGTON — Outside of its normal budgeting cycle, which directly targets the issue of burden-sharing with its allies, Denmark has agreed to increase its defense spending in the long term. Statement on the new Danish Defence Agreement 2018-2023. “On a well-thought-out and well-thought-out basis, the parties to the defense agreement have decided to further strengthen Danish defense, so that we will spend 1.5 percent of GDP in 2023,” Danish Defense Minister Claus Hjort Frederiksen said in a statement.

“NATO`s status and reputation are of common interest and I would like to thank all parties for taking responsibility for it.” It remains to be seen whether this increase will be enough to appease US President Donald Trump. Trump has repeatedly called on European allies to spend more on defense, focusing on meeting the 2 percent of GDP defense target set at the 2014 Wales Summit. Low spending in previous five-year defence agreements has limited Denmark`s ability to defend both its territories and contribute to NATO or UN operations. It has also prevented Denmark from significantly strengthening its defence and security capabilities and structures in the Arctic. U.S. leaders have consistently thanked Denmark for its unwavering participation in coalitions of the willing, with qualified personnel, interoperable equipment and without reservation. Denmark`s willingness to participate in real combat and its leadership to an audience that has shown extreme tolerance towards casualties and support for their armed forces in operations were also noted. Since the implementation of these changes, Danish Heads of State and Government have met with their US counterparts much more often than before, including frequent bilateral meetings with the President and Ministers of State and Defence. “The improvement of Denmark`s image in Washington has not only opened doors at the highest level: on several occasions, Danish diplomats have been invited to participate in special forums reserved for the United States` closest allies,” Ringsmose and Anders Henriksen noted in a book chapter titled “What has Denmark gained? Iraq, Afghanistan and relations with Washington. American gratitude extended to the promotion of Danish Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen to NATO Secretary General from 2009 to 2014 and Chief of Defense Knud Bartels to chairman of the NATO Military Committee from 2012 to 2015, placing the Danes in NATO`s highest leadership positions for 33 months. Danish leaders saw such awards as tangible indicators of their status and the U.S.
