Stoltenberg called the best way for Ukraine to move closer to NATO membership

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.

We would remind that on February 5, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine approved the new annual NATO-Ukraine National Program.

  • “The main focus for Ukraine is the one that Ukraine has proclaimed itself, namely reforms, modernization, improvements, and compliance with NATO standards,”

    For an organisation that includes countries that would see fellow member countries destroyed by Russia, before helping them out, I think you need to take a long hard look at the requirements for NATO. This is just more waffle from NATO, who are going the way of PACE, the ECHR and the OSCE.

  • This Marxist prick did not impose stringent conditions when he allowed piss-ass countries to join. One rule for one and one rule for another: no victims of putlerstani aggression allowed. Sack this maggot.
    Dave Cameron is available.

  • NATO membership would be a good thing for Ukraine. However, not when Ukraine must get on its knees and crawl through a cesspool before getting it … in ten or twenty years. My main hope is a continued Ukraine-friendly Congress. The US is NATO anyway and NATO is the US.

    • NATO need to ditch the deadwood, retain the countries that pay the 2%, and only allow the others back in when they do it. If Ukraine are willing to pay 2%, let them in immediately.
