BRUSSELS (AA) – NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg has announced that alliance leaders will hold an extraordinary summit on March 24 to discuss the Russian invasion of Ukraine and NATO’s response to it.
“I have convened an extraordinary Summit on 24 March at NATO headquarters,” Stoltenberg said on social media.
“We will address Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, our strong support for Ukraine, and further strengthening NATO’s deterrence and defense,” he added.
EU heads of states and governments will also hold a two-day summit in Brussels starting on the same day – exactly one month since Russia launched its war on Ukraine.
“US President Joe Biden will join the EU leaders’ summit in person on March 24,” confirmed an EU official, speaking on condition of unanimity.
