NATO and G7 countries met to discuss the explosions that took place in Poland and offered support and assistance for Poland‘s ongoing investigation, a statement by the countries said on Wednesday.

The emergency meeting took place after deadly explosions in Poland that Ukraine and Polish authorities said were caused by Russian-made missiles.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also warned Tuesday that it is “absolutely essential” to avoid escalating the Ukraine war after a deadly missile strike in NATO member Poland killed two people.

“The Secretary-General is very concerned by the reports of a missile exploding on Polish territory,” the UN chief said, according to his spokesman Farhan Haq. “It is absolutely essential to avoid escalating the war in Ukraine.”
