Ukraine crisis: NATO to create 'high-readiness force,' secretary-general says

Kiev, Ukraine (CNN) -- NATO members meeting this week in Wales are expected to create "a very high-readiness force" to deal with Russian aggression in Ukraine, NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said Monday.

In a speech on the NATO website, Rasmussen said the fighting force will be part of an overall "Readiness Action Plan (that) responds to Russia's aggressive behavior -- but it equips the alliance to respond to all security challenges, wherever they may arise."
