NATO Offers Political and Financial Support to Ukraine
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg – who is currently in New York to attend the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) – met on Tuesday with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The two leaders discussed NATO’s political and practical support to Ukraine, as well as preparations for the upcoming visit of the North Atlantic Council to Ukraine.
In the margins of the Assembly, the Secretary General also met with the US Special Representative for Afghan Reconciliation, Ambassador Khalilzad. They discussed the security situation in Afghanistan and NATO’s support for the peace talks.
The Secretary General welcomed Ambassador Khalilzad’s regular briefings to the North Atlantic Council. He stressed that NATO’s focus remains unchanged: to make the Afghan security forces stronger, so that they can fight international terrorism and create the conditions for lasting peace.
On Tuesday, the Secretary General participated in the opening of the UN General Debate. NATO and the United Nations reinforce one another, as organizations committed to tackling security challenges and upholding the international rules-based order.
Over the past decade, the two organizations have stepped up cooperation, working closely to support Afghanistan and Iraq. NATO has also contributed to developing UN disposal standards to counter improvised explosive devices, which remain one of greatest threats to peacekeepers.
