Mr Stoltenberg of the Nato Alliance was speaking at a news conference on the eve of an emergency summit on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
He pledged more troops for Hungary, Slovakia, Bulgaria and Romania.
Nato will also agree more support for Ukraine, including greater protection against the use of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons.
US President Joe Biden is on his way to Brussels for the summit on Thursday and for other meetings with European leaders. “I expect leaders will agree to strengthen Nato’s posture in all domains, with major increases in the eastern part of the alliance. On land, in the air and at sea,” Mr Stoltenberg said. In all, Nato has about 40,000 troops on its eastern border, stretching from the Baltic to the Black Sea. “There is a new sense of urgency because we cannot take peace for granted,” Mr Stoltenberg told reporters.
Well well Mr Stoltenberg – welcome to the party. “We cannot take peace for granted?” We on this posting had worked that out a long time ago. That’s why we have brought our prayer troops into the battle very quickly. What is much more worrying is the increase in troop numbers in the nations surrounding Ukraine. When there is so much military around – so many trained soldiers trained to kill, it is easy for things to quickly get out of hand.
The situation has got much more dangerous. Pray harder.
