Encompassing Warsaw and Szczecin, a three-day visit to Poland was the King's first trip out of Denmark since his accession to the throne in January. At HQ MNC NE, Frederik X spoke with the Corps' Commander Lieutenant General Jürgen-Joachim von Sandrart and the Command Group. Additionally, he took the opportunity to meet with Danish personnel serving at the Headquarters and their families.
Alongside Poland and Germany, Denmark is the Corps' founding and framework nation. HQ MNC NE was established in 1999 following a treaty signed by the ministers of defence of Poland, Germany and Denmark. Initially, it operated solely based on the partnership between these Allies from the Baltic Sea region and its fundamental task was to foster trilateral cooperation.
Denmark forms the third biggest contingent within the Headquarters, and the post of Deputy Commander MNC NE is manned by the Danish Army. Currently, it is held by Major General Peter Harling Boysen.
