US Ambassador to the Netherlands Pete Hoekstra has signed a new defence agreement with Henne Schuwer, the Dutch Ambassador to the US. The Chapeau Agreement has been signed to establish a framework for bilateral defence cooperation activities between the two countries.
With the agreement, both the Netherlands and the US will bolster their collaboration on several military equipment and operations.
Under the partnership, the two countries will be committed in exchanging military personnel, such as pilots, liaison officers and technicians, as well as information about the latest technological systems.
The agreement has been designed to primarily support large-material projects, such as the replacement of the Boeing CH-47 Chinook and AH-64 Apache helicopters.
