Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is to attend a two-day NATO meeting in Brussels on Tuesday to include talks on the crisis in Ukraine.

Foreign ministers are to discuss support for Ukraine and review their countries’ relationship with Russia at a two-day NATO meeting in Brussels.

NATO foreign ministers will also meet their Ukrainian counterpart Andrii Deshchytsia to decide on how the Alliance could further support Ukraine with its defense reforms.

The ministers will focus on increasing support for Ukraine and the consequences of Russia’s military actions in the country, NATO said in a statement.


Preparations for NATO’s Summit in Wales in September will also be made, as well as NATO’s relations with partners and the International Security Assistance Force’s (ISAF) operation in Afghanistan, according to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Monday.

"On the margins of the meeting, a ceremony will be held to mark the anniversary of NATO enlargements in the post-1999 period," said the Turkish ministry.

A meeting to be held between the EU, the United States and Turkey has been cancelled due to changes made by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who will arrive from Israel after another round of Israeli-Palestinian talks.
