NATO nations have agreed that they will not establish a no-fly zone in Ukraine.
This is despite the repeated appeal by President Volodymyr Zelensky for one.
There will be “no deployment of air or ground capabilities in Ukraine and that is the united position of our allies,” said NATO Chief, Jens Stoltenberg, according to CNN.
Stoltenburg spoke on Wednesday at a news conference in Brussels, after Ministers discussed the issue at a meeting of foreign ministers on Tuesday.
The Secretary-General said that the alliance was adamant not to escalate the war with Russia.
“We see destruction, we see human suffering in Ukraine but this can become even worse if NATO took actions that actually turned this into full-fledged war between NATO and Russia,” he said.
US President, Joe Biden is set to travel to Europe next week to participate in a NATO summit on March 24 and will also join a European Council meeting, White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki said on Tuesday.
