NATO Says F-16 Training For Ukraine Doesn’t Make It Party To Conflict

Washington supports joint allied training programs for Ukrainian pilots on F-16s warplanes.


Training Ukrainian pilots in flying US-built F-16 fighter jets does not make NATO a party to the conflict, the alliance’s chief Jens Stoltenberg said on Tuesday.

“Ukraine has the right of self-defence…We help Ukraine to uphold that right,” he told reporters. “That doesn’t make NATO and NATO allies a party to the conflict.”
