The United States vows to continue actions on "renewal of its commitment", regarding the security of NATO allies in Eastern Europe amid Russian aggression in the region, reports GHN based on Ukrinform.
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said this during a meeting with his Latvian counterpart Edgars Rinkevics in Washington on Thursday.
"Let me affirm, as clearly as I can today on behalf of President Obama and the United States, that our Article 5 obligations are absolutely rock-solid. We are engaged in major reassurance efforts at this point in time, which we will continue," Kerry said.
He also thanked Latvia for its commitment to raise its defense spending to the two percent and meet the requirement of NATO. Kerry called this "a strong example" to the rest of NATO partners.
Edgars Rinkevics, in turn, has confirmed that the establishment of peace in Ukraine is one of the main concerns for the EU. And Latvia believes that both EU and the United States should maintain very close cooperation.
"We should also look into possibility of further sanctions as the situation deteriorates; I'm ready to discuss with that," Rinkevics said.
