NATO Secretary General attends Munich Security Conference

Arriving at the Munich Security Conference on Friday (17 February 2023), NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stressed that, one year since Russia launched its full-fledged invasion of Ukraine, our security environment has fundamentally changed. He underlined the need to sustain support for Ukraine, so that it can win the war and prevail as a sovereign independent state in Europe. “If President Putin wins in Ukraine, it will be a tragedy for the Ukrainians but it will also be dangerous for all of us,” Mr Stoltenberg said, adding that this would be “a message to authoritarian leaders all over the world that when they use military force, they achieve their goals. And that will make the world more dangerous and also more vulnerable.”
