So, good afternoon. Welcome to all of you. And welcome to this NATO meeting of NATO's foreign ministers. 

Today, we will discuss how to further strengthen our collective defence, enhance our support Ukraine, and deepen our partnerships. 

We will also discuss preparations for NATO's 75th Anniversary Summit in Washington next year. 

Allies remain unwavering in their support for Ukraine and we are determined to bring Ukraine closer to NATO. 

This concludes the public part of the meeting. I thank the media for joining us at the meeting and then the meeting will continue in just a moment.
