Rome, 26 Nov. (LaPresse) – “It is clear that if Russia uses force against Ukraine, there will be costs and consequences. This is why we continue to ask Moscow for a de-escalation ”. This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference illustrating the issues that will be dealt with at the next Foreign Ministerial to be held on November 30 and December 1 in Riga. “We are worried about what we are seeing around Ukraine, a unusual concentration of Russian forces, and this is the second time it has happened this year “, all this happens” along with aggressive rhetoric from Russia “, added Stoltenberg,” We are not sure of Moscow’s intentions, but we know that Russia has already used force against Ukraine in the past, and continues to launch cyber attacks and hybrid attacks against Ukraine, all of which together creates concern. We ask Moscow for transparency, and to reduce tensions ”. The NATO approach, explained the secretary general, “remains the same, we believe that we must remain firm on our positions but at the same time we believe in a meaningful dialogue and we ask Russia to dialogue”.
