A two-day meeting of Foreign Ministers from NATO states begins Wednesday in Antalya, Turkey, to discuss developments relating to the Ukraine crisis.

Other issues, such as threats posed by the Islamic State (IS) militant group and NATO's Resolute Support Mission based in Afghanistan ,  will also be on the agenda.

Preparation for the forthcoming 2016 Warsaw Summit will also be on the agenda, Anadolu Agency said.

The forum includes talks on measures to step up security at the eastern flank which the alliance still considers threatened by the situation in Eastern Ukraine.

"We will keep NATO strong and we will help keep our neighborhood stable. Because if our neighborhood is stable we will be more secure," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg is quoted as saying.
