NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday said he had spoken to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban to address his concerns over NATO's role in Ukraine, and that he was confident those issues would be addressed in the coming weeks.

"What we are discussing is not a NATO combat presence in Ukraine. We are discussing how we can coordinate and deliver support from outside Ukraine to Ukraine as NATO allies do," Stoltenberg said at a NATO meeting in Brussels.

"And now when we initiate planning, I'm certain we can also address the concerns that Hungary has raised and find a way where we can have consensus," added Stoltenberg.
