London, Tuesday, 26 April 2022
NATO's senior diplomats will meet informally on May 14-15 in Berlin, the alliance announced on Monday.
"On the 14th and 15th of May, Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg will convene an informal meeting of NATO Foreign Ministers in Berlin, Germany," NATO's spokesperson, Oana Lungescu, announced on Twitter.
The ministers are likely to examine the situation in Ukraine, as well as the military bloc's response to the shifting security environment, after conversations in previous months.
NATO has activated defensive preparations and deployed elements of the NATO Response Force since the commencement of Russia's war in Ukraine.
Military leaders were also entrusted with developing strategies to strengthen NATO's long-term defence and deterrent posture in the east.
More equipment and supplies would be deployed on the land, as well as aircraft and strengthened air and missile defence systems, as well as carrier ships, submarines, and a large number of battle ships on a permanent basis, according to the plans.
At their meeting in Madrid in June, NATO leaders are likely to give the final approval.
