"It is a sovereign decision of each country": Kirby commented on the possibility of deploying foreign troops in Ukraine

The White House comments on the possibility of deploying NATO troops in Ukraine

US President Joe Biden's administration commented on reports that European countries are discussing the possibility of sending troops to Ukraine. They said that they would not object to proposals from other NATO countries to deploy their troops in Ukraine and emphasized that this is a sovereign decision of each country.

White House National Security Communications Advisor John Kirby said at a briefing on Friday, March 15, that he could only speak for the United States and that the country would not send troops to Ukraine. His words were quoted by the Ukrinform news agency.

At the same time, he emphasized that the White House is not asking other countries, such as France, to "stop talking about sending troops to Ukraine."

When asked whether the United States opposes other countries doing so, the White House spokesman said that this is a sovereign decision that is evaluated and made by each nation. At the same time, he noted that the United States continues to stand by the position announced earlier by Biden.

"I can only speak on behalf of this sovereign nation (the United States - Ed.) and this commander-in-chief. He has made it clear that we will not deploy our troops (in Ukraine - Ed.)," Biden's adviser said.

As reported, the day before, French President Emmanuel Macron said that he did not rule out the possibility of sending French troops to Ukraine. According to him, Paris "does not rule out such a scenario."

Earlier, the media reported tha Macron privately said that France could send troops to Odesa.

Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas also said that she could not guarantee that Tallinn would not send its military to Ukraine. She emphasized that "circumstances may change" and would not make any promises.
