Based on the current security situation, the member states of NATO should strengthen their own defense and help their partners like Ukraine and Georgia on the path of Euro-Atlantic integration.
President of the Republic of Lithuania Gitanas Nauseda stated this during a press briefing following a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.
“During the meeting, we discussed the threats and challenges in our region and beyond. We must accelerate our work and fully implement all decisions taken on NATO adoption and development. We have to be ready to protect and defend our countries and people. We also have to assist and help our trusted partners and friends like Georgia and Ukraine in the path of Euro-Atlantic reforms and integration,” the Lithuanian president said.
