NATO Allies Agree To Supply Weapons To Ukraine: Stoltenberg Says Will Activate Nuclear Defence Elements
Stoltenberg said the message to China is that they should join the rest of the world and condemn the brutal war in Ukraine and should neither support Russia economically nor militarily.
Brussels: As the Russia-Ukraine war continues to intensify for nearly a month, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday said the NATO allies have agreed to supply weapons to Ukraine to tackle such attacks. Addressing media, Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO has activated chemical, biological, and nuclear defense elements.
Stoltenberg expressed concern and said Russia might use the pretext of NATO preparing for a biological attack to carry out the same in Ukraine. “If it happens, it’ll change the nature of the conflict. It won’t just affect Ukraine but also NATO countries,” Stoltenberg added.
