Brussels, Aug 2 (EFE).- Nato secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday the Alliance had to boost military assistance to Ukraine “even faster” following a discussion with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
“Good call w/Pres@ZelenskyyUa on priorities for military support. It’s vital that #NATO & Allies provide even more assistance to #Ukraine even faster,” Stoltenberg wrote on Twitter.
“Also discussed 1st shipment of grain since #Russia’s invasion & need to fully implement deal sponsored by @UN & our Ally Türkiye,” the Norwegian politician added.
Stoltenberg was referring to the landmark UN-back deal signed by Russia and Ukraine last month to resume Ukrainian grain exports from three Black Sea ports to alleviate global food shortages.
Russia has said that it is difficult to implement the agreement to unblock the Ukrainian ports because Western “heavy weapons” continue to arrive at those ports.
Nato is not arming Ukraine as an organization, but the countries that comprise the Alliance are. EFE
