Statement by the NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană at the Informal Meeting of NATO Ministers of Foreign Affairs in Berlin.
Today (15 May 2022), NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană set out the priorities of a two-day Informal Meeting of Foreign Ministers in Berlin.
“We are at a moment of significant changes in European security, and NATO stands strong in support of Ukraine, and in defending the one billion people living in our Allied Nations,” he said.
“Yesterday evening, we were joined by the Swedish and Finnish Foreign Ministers. We know and we fully respect the democratic processes taking place in these two vibrant democracies, and if they will decide to seek membership, I am confident that Allies will look constructively and positively for their membership into this Alliance,” he added.
