The provision of fighter jets would not make NATO part of the war in Ukraine
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said the alliance would support Ukraine as long as needed.
“Almost one year since the invasion, President Putin is not preparing for peace. He is launching new offensives…We must continue to provide Ukraine with what it needs to win and to achieve a just and sustainable peace,” Stoltenberg said ahead of a meeting of NATO Defense ministers in Brussels on Feb. 13, 2023.
Stoltenberg also said he expected the issue of the possible supplying of aircraft to Ukraine to be discussed at the upcoming two-day meeting.
“There is now a discussion going on also on the question of aircrafts, and I expect that also to be addressed tomorrow at the meeting in Brussels,” he said.
NATO countries supplying fighter jets to Ukraine would not make NATO part of the conflict, he stressed.
