NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg reiterated the alliance’s support for Ukraine in a press conference in Bucharest, Tuesday.
He said that however NATO is “not a party to the conflict,” they are “providing unprecedented support to Ukraine,” claiming that “if we let Putin win, all of us will pay a much higher price, for many years to come.”
The Secretary-General also commented on China, saying that NATO will remain vigilant as “China is stepping up military modernisation. Increasing its presence from the Arctic to the Western Balkans, from space to cyberspace.”
Foreign ministers from across NATO met in Bucharest on Tuesday to discuss future support for Ukraine and strengthening the alliance’s eastern flank.
Kiev received heavy weaponry from Western allies since February, including long-range High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS), anti-armour platforms and artillery pieces.
