Denmark’s FM welcomes British plan for naval mission in the Strait of Hormuz
Denmark said on Friday it welcomed the British government’s proposal for a European-led naval mission to ensure safe shipping through the Strait of Hormuz and would consider a military maritime contribution.
“The Danish government looks positively towards a possible contribution to such initiative,” Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod said in a statement.
“As a seafaring nation, it is essential to Denmark that freedom of navigation is sustained,” he said, adding that a final decision would still need to be discussed in parliament once there was “a clearer picture of the exact tasks and partners.”
