NATO plans to strengthen its military presence in the Black Sea region

After a meeting of NATO Defense Ministers, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the Alliance will continue to build up its military presence in the Black Sea region, Evropeyskaya Pravda reported.

"There will be more pre-disposed equipment. Today, we have also confirmed Romania's proposal to establish a multinational brigade on its territory, and we will continue to take other measures to strengthen the balance of power in the southeastern direction,” Stoltenberg stated.

"We have increased our presence, in particular in terms of patrolling the airspace, the presence of naval forces, and training in these waters. We have to look at what else we can do," he added.

The final decision on which measures will be made at the NATO Summit in Warsaw on the 8th and 9th of July.
