There are already NATO Headquarters in this region. At the Warsaw Summit in 2016, NATO Allies agreed that Multi-National Divisional Headquarters North East, based in Elblag in Poland, would co-ordinate the activities of the Enhanced Forward Presence Battlegroups that NATO is deploying to the Baltic States and Poland. In addition, NATO’s Multi-National Corps North East Headquarters, capable of commanding operations, is located in Szczecin in Poland, and NATO Force Integration Units are located in all three Baltic States and Poland.
