Secretary Blinken and Secretary General Stoltenberg discussed our collective future in Afghanistan, noting that, as we have consistently said, the NATO Alliance went in to Afghanistan together, adjusted to changing circumstances together, and will leave together. They also discussed the immediate need for Russia to cease its aggressive military buildup along Ukraine’s borders and in occupied Crimea. The Secretary and Secretary General agreed it was essential for NATO to continue delivering support for Ukraine.
