The minister also emphasized the importance of cooperation between Europe and the United States and NATO allies in supporting Ukraine. The politician reminded of the threat that Putin's war poses to the security of Europe, and that Putin's victory would be an encouragement to other autocracies. This cannot be allowed, the minister emphasized.

As reported, Pistorius is on a visit to the United States. In addition to meetings and talks with his colleagues in Washington, he met with the UN Secretary General.
