The talk was mainly  focused on  security challenges facing the North Atlantic Alliance and the situation in Ukraine.

Both sides agreed that, despite the need for a more concrete definition of the forms of NATO's involvement in the southern flank, the situation on the eastern flank is a main  threat to the security of Europe. They also recognized that a reinforced presence must remain a permanent phenomenon, and that the Russian interpretation of the 1997 NATO-Russia Founding Act, which states that the Alliance cannot deploy troops within the territories adopted after 1989, is unacceptable.

The document clearly refers to the geopolitical situation and threats that have since changed significantly. They also recognized that the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine was a key element of the security of the whole of Europe, thus that state should be supported in its defense efforts and reforms manifesting its pro-European and pro-Atlantic orientation.

They have firmly advocated maintaining the strongest transatlantic bond and underlined the importance of US leadership in the Alliance.
