Met Foreign Minister Wang Yi@MFA_China . I called on #China to use its influence on #Russia to end its war in #Ukraine . I also raised #NATO 's concerns on human rights & Taiwan. We stand ready to continue our dialogue on global security.
Good to meet PM Al-Khadimi again to discuss regional developments & #NATO ’s partnership with #Iraq . Our @IraqNato mission remains committed to advising the brave Iraqi security forces, so they ensure that Daesh does not return.
Sham referendums have no legitimacy & do not change the nature of #Russia ’s war of aggression against #Ukraine . This is a further escalation in Putin’s war. The international community must condemn this blatant violation of international law & step up support for Ukraine.
We now have an agreement that paves the way for #Finland & #Sweden to join #NATO . I thank Presidents @RTErdogan & @niinisto & @SwedishPM for the constructive spirit that made this historic decision possible.
