USA sanctions against Moscow will remain in place until Russia withdraws from Ukraine, United States Secretary of state Rex Tillerson said on Thursday, speaking in front of his Russian counterpart at a security conference in Vienna.

"Keeping in mind the summit next July, we agreed that we should continue to strengthen our deterrent and defense capabilities, maintain the positive dialogue and support our partners in Eastern Europe", Stoltenberg said.

In preparation to NATO's 2018 Summit, Ministers agreed to review the progress of each aspirant country by April 2018.

"In eastern Ukraine we join our European partners in maintaining sanctions until Russian Federation withdraws its forces from the Donbass (region) and meets its Minks commitments", Tillerson said, referring to a previous deal to promote peace in Ukraine.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings held at the level of foreign ministers in Brussels made clear its intentions for increased cooperation with the European Union, and reaffirmed its engagements on the eastern borders of its zone of influence.

As the Soviet Union began to collapse in 1991, Georgia declared its independence, but pro-Moscow Abkhazia and South Ossetia seceded by force.

We will remind, recently the representatives of Ukraine and the Alliance discussed the program of NATO - Ukraine to study the experience of hybrid warfare in Ukraine.

"Last night, NATO Ministers had a good discussion on two issues: Russian Federation and North Korea. And we are engaged in increasingly close dialogue on the Black Sea region and the cooperation in the region", Stoltenberg said.

"NATO supports a peaceful resolution of the crisis through negotiations".

Earlier in the day, Ministers reaffirmed their practical and political support for Georgia as well as their commitment to Georgia's eventual membership of the Alliance.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg underlined NATO's commitment to Georgia's security and territorial integrity.
