NATO has supported the political resolution of the Ukrainian conflict throughout the entire period of its development, Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said, commenting on the planned negotiations between Ukraine and the Russian Federation.

“I fully trust the President (Volodymyr) Zelenskiy and his assessments of how useful these negotiations will be to find a political solution to the conflict. NATO has been supporting the search for a political solution all this time,” Stoltenberg said in an interview with CNN.

At the same time, he added that he could not yet judge how ready Russia really is for dialogue with Ukraine on the principles of goodwill and respect for the territorial integrity of this country.
