Stoltenberg: Black Sea is of strategic importance for NATO.

The Black Sea is of strategic importance for NATO and NATO has a presence in the Black Sea.

“The Black Sea is of strategic importance for NATO and NATO has a presence in the Black Sea. We have Allies like Bulgaria, Romania, and of course Turkey; and we have partners like Ukraine and Georgia. And we have increased our presence in the Black Sea region with more air policing, with presence at sea and on land, and we also, of course, work closely with Ukraine, to address the security challenges they face, because Russia has illegally annexed Crimea,” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated ahead of the Munich Security Conference.

He added that NATO also worked closely with Georgia and supported its efforts to implement reforms.

The Munich Security Conference is held on February 14-16. President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky will attend the Conference.
