The state should continue the course of reforms.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has said that the best way for Ukraine to move closer to NATO membership is to continue the reform course. He said this on February 11, before a meeting of NATO defense ministers to be held in Brussels on February 12-13, DW reports .
“The main focus for Ukraine is the one that Ukraine has proclaimed itself, namely reforms, modernization, improvements, and compliance with NATO standards,” Stoltenberg said, recalling that the Alliance is helping the country in this.
“This is the best way to move towards NATO membership. You should do it under any circumstances. When you modernize and reform yourself, you strengthen your institutions, but you are also moving towards membership,” the secretary general said.
