The exercise, which will last until June 2, "will put to test the ability of NATO communications units to ensure information exchange and communication among combat units of the NATO Response Force, joint and component headquarters worldwide," the Lithuanian Defense Ministry said.

The exercise command and control centre with infrastructure has been deployed to the Vytautas the Great Jaeger Battalion in Lithuania's second-biggest city of Kaunas.

Lithuania is hosting Steadfast Cobalt for the second time.
