Canceling the visit of the US Defense Minister to participate in the NATO Defense Ministers’ meeting

An American official said that the defense minister’s trip to Brussels was canceled after he was hospitalized and his duties were handed over to his deputy.

Lloyd Austen was supposed to participate in the meeting of NATO defense ministers next Thursday in the capital of Belgium, and a day before that he had a separate meeting with the Ukraine contact group.

75-year-old Lloyd Austen was admitted to the intensive care unit due to symptoms that indicated a sudden bladder problem.
