The meeting – as he said – will not end with any declaration.

I hope we will speak with one voice on this matter, ‘he said.

As he emphasized, the determination of the Alliance in this matter will be of great importance for building security in the world. – This will also affect the situation in the Pacific region, the attitude of China, which the US is afraid of in this area, he explained.
