The NATO secretary-general on Thursday said that the alliance plans to cooperate “even more closely” with Indo-Pacific partners.

"We ... plan to work even more closely with our Indo Pacific partners, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea, including technology cyber and countering hybrid threats," Jens Stoltenberg said at a news conference in Czech Republic's capital Prague, where two-day NATO informal foreign ministers' meeting is taking place.

Touching on the situation on the ground in Ukraine, the NATO chief stated that Ukraine continues to fight "bravely" but the challenges they face are "greater and growing."

"Ukraine can still prevail, but only with continued robust support from NATO allies," he said.

Russia launched its war on Ukraine on Feb. 24, 2022.

Speaking about the agenda of the meeting, Stoltenberg said: "At our ministerial, the foreign ministerial meeting tomorrow, we will also discuss how to address instability in our southern neighborhood, including the continuing threat of terrorism."
