From Morning Report, 6:18 am on 4 April 2024

NATO foreign ministers are meeting in Brussels to discuss how to put military support for Ukraine on a long-term footing.

On the agenda for the two-day meeting is a proposal for a 100 billion Euro five-year fund, and a plan seen as a way to 'Donald Trump-proof' aid for Kyiv.

The UK's Foreign Secretary David Cameron urged allies to continue their support for Ukraine.

The meeting celebrates the 75th anniversary of the founding of the alliance.

Also in attendance is Foreign Minister Winston Peters, who says his focus is on "progressing [our] traditional partnerships".

Brussels correspondent Ishan Garg spoke to Corin Dann.
