Description

NATO Secretary General Andres Fogh Rasmussen says in the upcoming summit in Cardiff next week, the member states would overcome divisions and agree on a new deployment on Russia's borders. France, Italy and Spain are against the deployments while the Americans and the British are supportive of the plan. Rasmussen also outlined moves to boost Ukraine's security, modernize its armed forces and help the country against what he called threats from Russia. The only NATO headquarters at Poland would likely be the hub for the new deployments. The move will certainly trigger a strong reaction from Moscow. The West and Russia has been at loggerheads over the crisis in Ukraine.
