Discussions focused on the crisis in Ukraine, caused by Russia’s aggressive actions. Secretary General Stoltenberg said that the ceasefire was “fragile”, but stressed that the Minsk agreement must be “respected and implemented in full”.

Secretary General Stoltenberg and President Kiska reviewed how NATO is adapting to face new security challenges, including through the creation of a very high readiness “Spearhead Force”, and the establishment of command and control centres in Eastern European Allies. Mr. Stoltenberg welcomed Slovakia’s commitment to invest more in defence, including on new equipment and TECHNOLOGIES, stressing that this will help keep our nations safe.
