原文:

‘This exercise provides the opportunity to train with SOF partners as well as U.S. and Swedish conventional forces across all warfighting functions and domains,’said Air Force Col. Nathan Owendoff, joint special operations task force commander.

Some efforts of the training were taking place at an undisclosed location while other parts were happening in the Baltic Sea near the Swedish naval base of Karlskrona.

In recent years, SOCEUR has bolstered its ties throughout the area. NATO has also stepped up its presence with multinational battlegroups in all of the Baltic states as well as Poland.

An official from Sweden's special operations command said the exercise showcases the importance of its partnership with U.S. forces. The strength of Swedish and U.S. special operations forces together enable conventional armed forces to defend the region.

中譯:

聯合特戰特遣隊指揮官、空軍上校歐文道夫表示,此次由特戰部隊夥伴及美國、瑞典2國傳統部隊共同參與的演習,讓渠等有機會進行各種作戰職能及領域的訓練。

該演訓某些部分是在一處秘密場地實施,而其餘操演則是在瑞典卡爾斯克魯納海軍基地附近的波羅的海進行。

近年來,駐歐美軍特戰指揮部一直在強化與這整個區域的關係;北大西洋公約組織也持續加強其與波羅的海各國及波蘭等多國作戰群的能見度。

一名瑞典特戰指揮部官員表示,此次演訓,展現該部與美軍夥伴關係的重要性,瑞典與美國特戰部隊的共同實力,足使傳統武裝部隊得以捍衛該地區。
