Poland Demands NATO Security Guarantees for Post-War Ukraine

Poland has called on Nato to provide security guarantees to Ukraine in the wake of the war in the eastern region of the country.

Poland’s Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz said at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Vadym Prystaiko that Nato should provide security guarantees to Ukraine to ensure its stability and territorial integrity.

Czaputowicz said that Poland is ready to support Ukraine in its efforts to join Nato and that it is important to ensure that the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity are respected.

Prystaiko said that Ukraine is grateful for Poland’s support and that the two countries are working together to ensure a peaceful resolution to the conflict in the east of the country.

He added that Ukraine is committed to pursuing its goal of joining Nato and that it is seeking to strengthen its defence and security capabilities.

The call for Nato security guarantees comes as Ukraine continues to face a Russian-backed separatist insurgency in the east of the country.

The conflict has killed more than 13,000 people since it began in 2014 and has caused a humanitarian crisis in the region.
