There are differences of opinion between Russia and NATO regarding Ukraine and they will not be easy to break, said Stoltenberg. The members of the North Atlantic Pact affirmed “the right of countries to decide their own fate”. “Russia has no veto over whether Ukraine can become a member of the Alliance,” announced NATO’s secretary general.

– Our differences will not be easy to eliminate, but it is a positive sign that all NATO allies and Russia sat at the same table and dealt with substantive topics – he pointed out. Stoltenberg stressed that NATO reaffirmed its “open door policy”.

“NATO is in dialogue with Russia, but we will not compromise on the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries in Europe,” Stoltenberg said. In his opinion, Russian troops are located in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, where they are “uninvited and undesirable”.

NATO’s Secretary General said that NATO allies had called on Russia to withdraw its military forces from Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. – We will do what we can to prevent a new armed conflict – he said.

He stressed NATO’s position that “there will be no compromises on the fundamental principles.” He also pointed out that the idea that NATO enlargement is an aggressive act is completely untrue.
