The lack of unity among NATO members on Sweden and Ukraine’s accession is threatening the strength of the US-led alliance, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says.
“We are expecting unity from the NATO Alliance. NATO’s strength is in unity," Zelensky said during a news conference in Bratislava, Slovakia.
"It is very important for the NATO states to know that they are protected. And through unity, they feel protected. And I think there is still a question about Sweden, a question whether or not to invite Ukraine, I think it lacks unity,” he added.. “And I think it threatens the strength of the NATO alliance.”
Ahead of the NATO summit next week in Vilnius, Lithuania, Zelensky said he is looking for "steps towards these positive results. This is very important for the safety of the whole world."
