(Trondheim, Norway) -- The Minnesota National Guard is strengthening its military ties with Norway.

The Guard signed an official State Partnership Program agreement with the country Wednesday in Trondheim, Norway.

Governor Tim Walz participated in the signing ceremony which expanded the long-standing partnership between the Minnesota and Norway's militaries.

The Department of Defense's State Partnership Program pairs the National Guard in a U.S. state or territory with a partner nation's forces.
