He clarified that he can only comment on behalf of the US Department of Defense, not entire NATO.

In a telephone conversation with Putin, Merkel underlined that "the use of migrants against the EU by the Belarusian regime is inhuman and completely unacceptable" - the official representative Steffen Seibert stated. She asked Putin to ask the regime in Minsk to do something. Vladimir Putin doesn’t want to interfere. The German mass media and officials have already accused Moscow and the ’Aeroflot’ airline company of transporting and even smuggling citizens from the Middle East to Belarus, in order to put pressure on the EU. In the border zone between Belarus and Poland, thousands of refugees are currently stuck in difficult weather conditions, since the EU doesn’t want to accept the migrants. Observers expect the situation to get worse. 5 The EU The EU High Representative Josep Borrell is pushing for a European response force of 5,000 servicemen by 2025. This is part of the "strategic vector" that Borrell presented to the ambassadors of the 27 member states, and which the EU foreign ministers will have to discuss on Monday. Borrell stated that the mission scenarios for the EU’s Rapid Deployment Capability will be decided in 2022. Regular military exercises will be held from 2023. These response forces won’t become a competitor, or alternative to the NATO - the nearly 30-page text stated. 6 Spain The EU defense ministers will discuss the situation on the Belarusian-Polish border on 16th of November - the head of the Spanish military department Margarita Robles stated. “What is happening in Belarus is a hybrid threat, a way to threaten the country. And the worst thing is that they do it with the help of people, refugees, who are being used as throwing weapons, let me put it this way. Europe can’t be a territory with barriers, walls. This can’t be allowed. Next week, on Tuesday, there will be a meeting of the EU defense ministers, and I am sure this topic will be discussed as well" - Robles stated in an interview to the ’’Antena 3’’ TV.
