The security consultations in Bucharest focused on the situation on the Polish-Belarusian border as well as on preparations for next year's NATO summit and relations between the Western military alliance and the European Union, Polish Defence Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said after the meeting.
He told reporters that he had briefed the gathering on "the hybrid attack" staged against Poland and its Baltic neighbours Lithuania and Latvia by Belarus' "Lukashenko regime."
"We talked about how to resolve this issue," Błaszczak said.
The gathering in the Romanian capital on Thursday brought together defence ministers from nations referred to as the Bucharest Nine (B9) group: Poland, Lithuania, Bulgaria, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Latvia, Romania and Slovakia, Polish state news agency PAP reported.
The Bucharest Nine is a Polish-Romanian initiative launched in 2015 that aims to help exchange views and coordinate positions on the security of NATO’s eastern-flank countries.
