The exercises featured soldiers from 31 countries and included Finland and Sweden, which aren't part of the alliance.

We will remind that from 25 October to 7 November received military North Atlantic Treaty Organisation exercises Trident Juncture in 2018, which became the biggest after the end of the cold war.

"We are following the situation closely along with relevant authorities", read a statement sent to news bureau NTB from the Norwegian defense department (Forsvaret). The Russian Foreign Ministry said that such a massive demonstration of combat capabilities "are clearly oriented against Russia and have a negative effect on the security of all countries in the region without exception.".

A Norwegian Defence Ministry spokesman said: "We are aware that jamming has been recorded between October 16 and November 7 from the Russian forces".

Norway's Foreign Ministry "was aware that jamming has been recorded between October 16 and November 7 from the Russian forces" on the Arctic Kola peninsula, it said in an email to the Associated Press.

It is not believed that the disturbed location signals have led to any accidents.

On 11 November, Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipila had said the "almost certainly deliberate" disruption of Global Positioning System signals across Lapland had put civil aviation in the region at risk.

He said the electronic interference was traced back to the Kola peninsula in Russia's far Arctic northwest.

China says high-level trade talks with US have resumed
Xi and Trump are due to meet this month at a gathering of the Group of 20 major economies in Argentina. It was unclear if the response contained concessions that would satisfy Trump's demands for change.

In its statement on Thursday, the Finnish ministry said it would not be appropriate to release details on the matter to the public.

The Kola Peninsula is close to the Norwegian-Russian border and is where the Russian Navy bases its northern fleet.

Finnish President Sauli Niinisto has called for a thorough investigation into the incident, Associated Press reports.

Wenche Olsen, Director of Norway's Civil Aviation Authority told Barents Observer that her agency was aware of the periodically disturbances of Global Positioning System signals in Eastern Finnmark.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov described the accusations against Russian Federation as "groundless".

Asked about Finland's claims, Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that cyber and electronic warfare were becoming more and more widespread, "therefore we take all these issues very seriously".

"There is a trend to blame all mortal sins on Russia", Dmitry Peskov said.
