Latvia: Building Baltic Defence Line could take decade: minister

The construction of the Baltic Defence Line in Latvia could take a decade, Latvian Defence Minister Andris Spruds estimated, LETA reports. He noted that the project would entail significant costs, which were currently being assessed. The government will have to align the costs with other national priorities, the minister said. Earlier, Baltic defence ministers signed an agreement on building “anti-mobility defensive installations” on the borders with Russia and Belarus, but the agreement does not stipulate concurrent construction.
