He recalled that the Allies had agreed at the Warsaw summit in 2016 that the approach to Russian Federation, including defense and dialogue, was effective. "So we will begin with a meeting on NATO-EU relations and European defense".

Speaking on the last day of NATO's foreign ministers' conference in Brussels, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Wednesday that the alliance was committed to the security of Georgia, a former Soviet republic that has battled the Russia-backed separatist movements of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

Federica Mogherini, the European Union's high representative and vice president, and representatives from Finland and Sweden will join in the discussions, Stoltenberg said.

Stoltenberg said the missile test showed North Korea's reckless behaviour, and added that the world must put maximum diplomatic, political and economic pressure on North Korea in order to achieve a peaceful solution. "And we must apply maximum worldwide pressure in order to achieve a peaceful solution".

The Secretary General also noted that NATO Foreign Ministers discussed "progress Georgia continues to make along the path of reform, including with its successful efforts to modernize its armed forces".

"We will assess our training and capacity building support for partners like Iraq and Jordan", he added. "As the coalition moves from combat operations to stabilization, we will consider how NATO's contribution should evolve".

He said North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was "fully" committed to provide Georgia with the advice and tools it needed to advance toward potential alliance membership. "Our partnership is outstanding, our forces serve side by side in Afghanistan", said Stoltenberg. The Commission also reviewed the implementation of the Substantial NATO-Georgia Package, which, according to the Secretary General, "is strengthening Georgia's defense institutions, and assisting it on its path towards membership in the Alliance".
