G7 and NATO leaders call for investigation into missile strike in Poland

The leaders of NATO and G7 member countries have issued a joint statement on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Bali, Indonesia, where they have ratified their support and assistance to Poland to carry out an investigation into the impact of missiles on its territory that has claimed the lives of two people, all in fear that it was an attack on a member country of the Atlantic Alliance.

"Today, the leaders of Canada, the European Commission, the European Council, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States have met on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Bali (... We offer our full support and assistance with the ongoing investigation into Poland," the world leaders said in a letter released by the White House.

Hours after Poland met its security council after the explosion in a town near its border with Ukraine, the heads of state and government of different countries have agreed to remain "in close contact" to determine "the appropriate next steps". as the investigation progresses.

However, those attending the emergency meeting have also condemned "the barbaric attacks" with missiles that Russia has perpetrated on the cities and civil infrastructure of Ukraine during the day on Tuesday.

"We reaffirm our strong support for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people in the face of ongoing Russian aggression, as well as our continued readiness to hold Russia accountable for its brazen attacks on Ukrainian communities, even as the G20 meets to discuss the broader impacts of war", wields the joint communiqué.

In the midst of the G20 summit that is being held these days in Bali, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, has convened --at the suggestion of the European Union-- an emergency meeting inviting the heads of State and Government of United Kingdom, Canada, France, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Japan, as well as the President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, and the President of the European Council, Charles Michel.

In addition to Von der Leyen and Michel, the meeting was attended by the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak; Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau; French President Emmanuel Macron; the President of the Government of Spain, Pedro Sánchez; German Chancellor Olaf Scholz; the Italian prime minister, Giorgia Meloni; the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, Mark Rutte; and the Prime Minister of Japan, Fumio Kishida.

Meanwhile, Warsaw is studying the current conditions and whether the premises are met to start the procedures to invoke Article 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty, which contemplates the calling of consultations between allies when a NATO member considers that its territorial integrity, security or political independence are threatened.

Since its creation, it has been invoked seven times, the last one following the Russian invasion of Ukraine on February 24. At that time, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Slovakia asked to hold consultations.
