UK to send 1,000 troops for NATO Spearhead Force

The UK will contribute 1,000 personnel to a new multi-national rapid reaction force, Prime Minister David Cameron has said. He suggested the NATO “multinational spearhead force” could be deployed anywhere in two to five days.

The British prime minister announced the force, to be based in Eastern Europe, will be launched in response to alleged Russian military involvement in Ukraine and instability in the Middle East.
