Stoltenberg: NATO will affirm its support for Ukraine at the summit in Warsaw

The Alliance countries will approve a new assistance package for Ukraine and reaffirm its full support of the territorial integrity and sovereignty at the Summit in Warsaw, said Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference in Brussels, on July 4th.

According to him, on the second day of the Summit, a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission with the participation of President Petro Poroshenko will take place. "I’ve been looking forward to the opportunity to meet Poroshenko. He will speak before the summit audience and report on the situation in Ukraine. We [the NATO countries] will confirm our strong support for Ukraine, its territorial integrity and sovereignty. We will reaffirm our commitment to the implementation of the Minsk Agreements. We see regular ceasefire violations and in Warsaw we will call on both sides to observe the ceasefire," Stoltenberg said.

He added that NATO will increase practical support for Ukraine. "We will agree on a comprehensive support package by bringing together various aspects including strategic advice and cooperation. We will add new projects to this cooperation, in particular, measures to counter hybrid threats," he said.

As was reported, in June, the Defense Ministers of the NATO countries approved a comprehensive support package for Ukraine.
