NATO plans to deepen its partnership with Ukraine and Georgia, said Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a press conference in Brussels. RIA Novosti informed. "We decided to deepen our partnership with Ukraine and Georgia even more," he said. It is also about the Black Sea region, Stoltenberg added. He explained that following the Thursday videoconference with foreign ministers of the alliance’s countries, a package of measures was adopted to support these countries. "The package that we agreed on for Georgia and Ukraine is aimed at conducting exercises, providing access to more NATO education and training programs, exchanging radar data in order to better understand what is happening in the region’s airspace," Stoltenberg said. In April 2019, in Washington NATO countries agreed on measures to support Ukraine and Georgia in the Black Sea. In particular, exercises, exchange of information and calls at ports of the water area are provided. The measures are also aimed at raising NATO awareness of the situation in the Black Sea.
