Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg announced this, Yevropeyska Pravda reports.

"Stability in Europe's neighboring areas is important for our security," said Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende.

Another $120 thousand will be given to a NATO trust fund aiming to increase women's participation in the Jordanian armed forces.

Norway will also lead a trust fund for the Joint Training and Evaluation Centre in Georgia. The purpose of the center will be to modernize Georgia's defense sector and increase the NATO interoperability of its forces.

"The unstable situation to the south and east represents a long-term challenge to Europe's security. It is important that this challenge is met not only by strengthening our own defense and deterrence capability; we must also enable our partners to take responsibility for their own security," said Brende.
