Islamabad: The Danish-Pak relations has expanded considerably over the last couple of years through increased development cooperation, humanitarian assistance, stabilization efforts and trade. Denmark has now further expanded its cooperation with Pakistan. Although cooperation between the Danish armed forces and the National Defence university has been on-going for some years with exchanges of researchers between the two institutions, it is however the first time that the highly prestigious National Strategy and War Course from NDU visits Denmark as part of its annual Foreign Study Tour. Col. Steen B. Andersen, Defence Attache of the Embassy of Denmark was part of the historical visit and said that ”It is a great opportunity for Denmark to present our country to future high level commanders of the Pakistan Armed Forces. Although the main emphasis of the visit was on military aspects, the programme was also a presentation of the Danish democracy, Danish Foreign and Defense policies. It also presented high level Danish business priorities like the world´s largest shipping company Maersk and the Danish emphasis on waste management and how waste – at a very competitive price – can be turned into electricity”. The visit included briefings and discussions between Danish researchers at the Royal Danish Defence College and the students from NDU on contemporary subjects like NATO, conflicts in Africa and the situation in Afghanistan from a Danish perspective resulting in open and frank discussions. The visit is part of the Danish Government’s partnership program with the Government of Pakistan within the areas of stabilization and military collaboration.
