NATO’s Trident Juncture 18 exercise will draw in 45,000 troops, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Tuesday, unveiling what officials confirmed would be the alliance’s biggest manoeuvres since the Cold War.

Stoltenberg said the exercise would simulate the defence of a member state from a “fictional” adversary, but the troops, tanks, ships and planes are headed for Norway, the North Atlantic and the Baltic — opposite Russia.

“The exercise is defensive, and it is transparent,” the NATO leader told reporters on the first day of a two-day meeting of the 29-member alliance’s defence ministers at its new Brussels headquarters.

“All members of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, including Russia, have been invited to send observers,” he said.
