HELSINKI -- The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said here on Thursday that NATO has no plans to deploy forces to Ukraine.

At a joint press conference with Finnish President Alexander Stubb on the second day of his two-day visit to Finland, Stoltenberg said that "we are focusing on how we can establish a stronger framework for our support" to Ukraine.

Echoing Stoltenberg's position, Stubb

also said that Finland has no plans to send troops to Ukraine, adding that Finland is in discussions with allies about options for supporting Ukraine.

At the press conference, Stoltenberg also noted that he saw no imminent military threat against any NATO ally from Russia, and not even after the end of the conflict.

"This idea that there is a kind of a countdown to the next war is wrong," he said.

Stubb also believes the idea of a Russian attack is implausible.
