NATO secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said Russia could take “extensive” aggressive actions against Ukraine, but that there was still a chance for a peaceful negotiated solution, AFP reported from Brussels.Stoltenberg said at an event hosted by the Atlantic Council, a U.S. think tank, that while NATO was still unsure what the Kremlin might do, he did not want to speculate too much, and that the goal now was to try to defuse tensions.He called on “Russia to sit down and negotiate to find a political solution.”He reportedly said NATO was ready for political dialogue.But if Russia opts for armed conflict and confrontation, NATO is ready to respond and is prepared for both options.But he acknowledged that there were “some differences among the Allies” over what kind of support to provide to Ukraine.Source: Refer to message flow editor: TF060
