Prime-minister of the Ukrainian junta Arseny Yatsenyuk hopes that NATO will support its statement regarding the open doors for Kiev’s membership in the alliance with practical decisions next year, during the NATO summit in spring.
“When I speak of our future membership in NATO, I would like to remind of the decision of the Bucharest summit of 2008 when it was clearly stated that NATO’s doors are always open for Ukraine. I hope that this statement will be supported by practical decisions during the summit next year in Warsaw,” Yatsenyuk said during the joint press point with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.
At the same time, according to Yatsenyuk, Kiev is prepared to make serious and long-term efforts for the sake of joining the alliance.
“The process of Ukraine achieving NATO membership is difficult and will need both efforts on the part of the Ukrainian government and time. The plan developed by us and NATO is very important for the possibility of achieving membership in the alliance,” the prime-minister noted.
