KUWAIT CITY: NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen has put off a visit to Kuwait this week to follow the fast-developing situation in Ukraine, a NATO source said on Monday.

Rasmussen was planning to visit Kuwait on Wednesday and Thursday, the source told KUNA.

The NATO chief yesterday strongly condemned the Russian military activity in Ukraine, saying it is a threat to the security of Europe.

Two days ago, the Russian Federation Council asked Putin to take “exhaustive measures” and use the Russian Armed Forces to protect Russians in Ukraine.
