Sec Gen-Ukraine Support There 'As Long As Needed' Ahead Of For Min Summit

NATO

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, speaking at the Aspen-GMF Bucharest Forum stated that support for Ukraine from the alliance will be in evidence as long as it is required, seeking to nix claims about mission fatigue among some NATO members.

  • Stoltenberg: "NATO is vigilant. We will support Ukraine to the end, we will not back down. Putin's war has not made us forget other partners, such as Georgia, Moldova and Bosnia-Herzegovina, that we will support so that they can defend themselves"
  • On NATO enlargement: "NATO enlargement is the free, democratic and sovereign decision of independent nations and it is not and never has been a threat to Russia...it is democracy that is feared by Putin and that’s why he invaded Ukraine”.
  • Stoltenberg: "We remember the promise made in 2008 in Bucharest that Ukraine will join NATO - the Alliance stands by it. Right now, we focus on direct military support for Ukraine to defend itself.”
  • Comments come ahead of today's foreign ministers' summit in Bucharest, Romania. Doorstep from Stoltenberg at 0515ET/1015GMT/1115CET. Short remarks w/US Sec of State Blinken @ 0630ET/1130GMT/1230CET. Post-meeting presser at 1030ET/1530GMT/1630CET.
