I have taken note of the announcement by the Danish Government to withdraw from the NATO Alliance Ground Surveillance project.

I strongly regret this decision.  AGS is designed to make soldiers from all NATO countries safer and more effective when they are deployed on operations.

Denmarks' withdrawal from the program sends the wrong signal to our forces and to other Allies.
