The so-called Joint Declaration, the third to be passed, is aimed primarily at strengthening more military collaboration.
NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg described the agreement as very important and praised NATO’s crucial role in Euro-Atlantic security.
Ursula von der Leyen, on the other hand, threatened to launch new sanctions against nations collaborating with Russia, especially Belarus and Iran, and confirmed the transatlantic support for Ukraine.
Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has declared on several times his country is not involved in the Ukraine conflict.
Likewise, the Iranian government has denied claims by Western leaders about an alleged delivery of weapons to Moscow, especially unmanned aerial vehicles.
