NATO won’t send combat troops to Ukraine, the alliance’s Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said, APA reports.
“NATO will not deploy NATO combat troops to Ukraine,” he said in an interview with CNN.
He also said that NATO will send a written response to Russia’s security proposals this week in parallel with the United States.
“We are finalizing at NATO the proposals, the written document we will send to them later this week. We will do that in parallel with the United States,” Stoltenberg said in an interview with CNN.
NATO is ready to “sit down and discuss arms control, disarmament, transparency on military activities, risk reduction mechanisms and other issues which are relevant for European security,” he said.
“But we are not ready to compromise on core principles,” Stoltenberg said.
