NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg said that NATO is still ready for a “constructive dialogue” with Russia
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Thursday welcomed US plans to send additional troops to Europe.
Stoltenberg said that NATO is considering sending additional combat groups to the southeast of the alliance’s territory amid tensions on the Russian-Ukrainian border.
Stoltenberg told reporters that, while preparing for possible military action by Russia, NATO is still ready for a “constructive dialogue” and the search for a diplomatic solution to the crisis.
“NATO continues to call on Russia to de-escalate. Any further Russian aggression will entail serious consequences, and a high price will have to be paid for it,” he said.
