Canadian hardware arrives in Latvia

Military equipment from NATO ally Canada was unloaded in Riga May 6 in advance of the full deployment of a multinational NATO battalion to reinforce the region.

A release from the Defense Ministry said the hardware included Light Armored Vehicles (LAVs) as well as communications and combat support equipment and more prosaic items such as building materials to be used at Ādaži base, where around 455 Canadian troops will be based as part of a 1,200-strong multinational battalion.

"This is a significant achievement, that we have performed in a short time, and Latvian and Canadian soldiers are working closely to ensure that the Ādaži base will be ready to host the Canadian-led of Battle Group," said Colonel Josh Major of the Canadian armed forces was quoted as saying.
