The situation in the Russian-annexed Crimea and the Black Sea is worrying and concerning. However, NATO has enough allies in this region, said John Bolton, the U.S. presidential advisor on national security matters.
'We're very concerned about this. There are many NATO allies in the Black Sea. We expect that the access will be maintained throughout the Black Sea for all coastal states and for other trading parties that use the Black Sea. The same applies to the Baltic Sea, the same applies to the Arctic Ocean. We and Russians had difficult discussions about these and many other issues in which they are trying to intervene beyond the limits their legitimate interests reach," Bolton said, cited by Radio Liberty.
Bolton arrived in Kyiv on August 27. During the visit, he claimed that the meeting of Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky and U.S. President Donald Trump would take place in Warsaw.
