US President Joe Biden has said NATO would “respond” if Russian President Vladimir Putin used a chemical weapon during his invasion of Ukraine.

“We will respond if he uses it. The nature of the response would depend on the nature of the use,” Biden said after a NATO summit in Brussels.

He added Putin had failed to divide the West and that “NATO has never, never been more united than it is today.”

B departing for Europe on Wednesday, Biden had said that the possibility of a chemical attack was a “real threat.”
