Stoltenberg urges Seoul to send more aid to Ukraine

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg called on South Korea on Monday to send further military support to Ukraine. "At the end of the day, it's a decision for you to make, but I'll say that several NATO allies who have had as a policy to never export weapons to countries in a conflict have changed that policy now," he said.

Stoltenberg also stressed the importance of "extended deterrence" provided by nuclear powers, such as the United States, to South Korea. "As long as we see that authoritarian powers are having [nuclear weapons] in Russia and investing heavily in mobilizing them, as we see what China is doing, and also what North Korea is doing, then nuclear deterrence still has an extremely important task to fulfill," he said. North Korea warned Stoltenberg's words could push the region closer to conflict.
