NATO’s spearhead force
In response to the increasing threat on the Alliance’s eastern border, NATO has created a new spearhead force named: the Very High Readiness Joint Task Force (VJTF). Currently, the Netherlands is one of the countries involved in VJTF’s interim capability, and thus the question arises what the role of the Dutch parliament is in the endeavor. According to Advisory Council of International Affairs (AIV) Secretary Marja Kwast-van Duursen, the Dutch parliament should always be informed about VJTF’s operations, prior to the operations taking place.
