During his visit to Seoul, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg informed that South Korea needs to provide military support to Kiev. This is reported by the Yonhap news agency.
"We call on South Korea to take up (consideration of) the specific problem of military support… This is a decision that South Korea must make," the NATO Secretary General demanded.
He also noted that a number of allies in the North Atlantic Alliance, in particular, Germany, Sweden and Norway, had previously refused to supply weapons to participants in conflicts, but in the case of Ukraine they changed their position.
According to Stoltenberg, military assistance to Ukraine is able to "create conditions for lasting peace through Ukraine's victory."
The head of NATO arrived in Seoul on January 29. After the meeting of the NATO Secretary General with South Korean Foreign Minister Park Chin, the parties made a statement on the need to strengthen relations.
Earlier, the head of the South Korean Defense Ministry, So Uk, indicated that his country "restricts assistance to lethal weapons systems."
