BRUSSELS, March 4 NATO allies stand in
solidarity in the face of the Ukraine crisis and will intensify
their assessment of how it affects the alliance's security, NATO
Secretary-general Anders Fogh Rasmussen said on Tuesday.
Speaking after a meeting of NATO ambassadors, convened at
the request of Poland, Rasmussen also said Russia continued to
violate its international commitments towards Ukraine despite
calls for Moscow to de-escalate the conflict.
"NATO allies stand together in the spirit of strong
solidarity in this grave crisis. We undertake to intensify our
rigorous ongoing assessment of the implications of this crisis
for our alliance's security," Rasmussen told reporters.
