Stoltenberg: NATO is in confrontation with Russian Federation over aggression in Ukraine

NATO chief says 'concerned' about situation in Yemen

"Keeping in mind the summit next July, we agreed that we should continue to strengthen our deterrent and defense capabilities, maintain the positive dialogue and support our partners in Eastern Europe", Stoltenberg said.

US sanctions against Moscow will remain in place until Russia withdraws from Ukraine, United States Secretary of state Rex Tillerson said on Thursday, speaking in front of his Russian counterpart at a security conference in Vienna.

Stoltenberg raised concern over the deepening of Russia's relations with the Abkhazia and South Ossetia regions of Georgia. We agreed that our approach to Russian Federation, the decision on which was adopted at the summit in Warsaw in 2016 deterrence and dialogue - was effective.

"We call on Russian Federation to end its recognition of these regions and withdraw its forces from Georgian territory", he added. Moscow keeps troops in both regions in what Georgia considers an occupation.

Opening the Commission meeting, the Secretary General said the Alliance was "strongly committed to Georgia's security and territorial integrity".

The work was sold to the Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev who purchased the da Vinci painting for $127.5 million in 2013. The museum's opening has also coincided with a period of heightened political tension in the Gulf and the broader Middle East.

"NATO continues to benefit from Georgia's advice on security issues relating to the Black Sea. And we are engaged in increasingly close dialogue on the Black Sea region and the cooperation in the region".

New agreements were reached with the European Union regarding increased military mobility, strengthened information exchange in counter-terrorism operations and coordinated support for partner countries, and more promotion of women's role in peace and security.

Tillerson stated he had a productive discussion with Georgian Foreign Minister Janelidze in the frame of the ministerial.

Georgia - a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partner but not a full member - staged a major joint military exercise with the United States in July in a show of defiance to Moscow, which has thousands of troops posted in two disputed Georgian regions.

"Georgia is a large contributor to our joint efforts in Afghanistan".
