Michael Fallon says the UK will be the lead nation in the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF) in 2017 and then on rotation thereafter, ITV news reports. This will see the UK contributing manpower to two regional headquarters in Poland and Romania and to force integration units in the three Baltic States, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria.

The UK will also send four RAF Typhoon jets to support the NATO Baltic Air policing mission again in 2015.
