John Kirby said Tuesday that the exercises will last about a month, and initially involve about 600 troops. Under the current plan, U.S. troops would rotate in and out of the four countries for additional exercises on a recurring basis.Kirby said the U.S. will likely plan other exercises and will continue to work through NATO on joint measures that could be scheduled in the future.
