Significance A win-win deal for both, it strengthens their long-standing excellent relations. It also enhances Greece’s military position in the Aegean Sea and France’s presence in the Eastern Mediterranean. However, following a peaceful summer in the Aegean, the pact risks raising tensions between Greece (and Cyprus) and Turkey over maritime borders and drilling rights. Impacts US-Greek defence agreement will be updated to cover a long-term arrangement, allowing for more investment in US bases in Greece. Turkish defence procurement from Russia is likely to rise, straining ties with Washington. Low-level exploratory talks between Greece and Turkey will continue as scheduled amid mutual recriminations.

The article contributes to the debate on European defence cooperation and integration by analysing the German–Norwegian security and defence partnership. I define this partnership as being based upon mutual interests and values, and one in which the minor partner has important resources to contribute which accord with the larger partner’s interests and values. The article analyses this partnership within the framework of European integration and Atlantic cooperation, and in terms of how the discourse on strategic autonomy shapes the partnership. The article discusses two specific areas of cooperation, the High North and German–Norwegian collaboration on defence procurement. When analysing this relationship, I argue that Norway applies strategies such as acting as an external resource, adaptation and shielding to influence German policies vital to Norwegian security.
