Ukrainian diplomacy continues negotiations with partners in NATO to ensure that Kyiv’s interests are taken into account in the final declaration of the North Atlantic Council that will convene June 14, Deputy Head of the President’s Office, Ihor Zhovkva, told UNIAN.

“As for the invitation to the NATO summit, it would be politically correct to say that the Alliance decided to hold a meeting of the NATO North Atlantic Council on June 14 at the level of Allies’ heads of state and government,” the official told the agency.

At the same time, in the remaining period before the summit, the Allies could yet reconsider the format, Zhovkva suggests.

The Alliance sometimes organizes summits without the involvement of partner countries, the President’s Office recalls.

“For example, this was the case with the London 2019 summit and Strasbourg/Kehl 2009 summit, where only the Allies partook. Therefore, the upcoming summit of the Alliance following a presidential election in the United States is quite expected to be held in a ‘narrow circle’ of NATO member states,” said the deputy chief of the President’s Office.

The main thing for the Ukrainian side, Zhovkva believes, is the content of the NATO summit.

“Here we can be sure that the topic of Ukraine will be definitely discussed. We have been assured of this by all our closest NATO partners – the United States, Canada, Germany, France, and Poland. As for the possible decisions of the summit, including with regard to Ukraine, they will be laid down in its joint final paper. Work on such a document continues. We keep negotiating with our partners to ensure that Ukraine’s interests are taken into account in the Alliance’s final decision,” the official summed up.

  • That these fuckers are not red in their faces in shame is what really surprises me. German scum organized Maidan only to now humiliate and hurt Ukraine on a daily basis. If you think of the price ukrainians already paid only to get nowhere, one has to throw up!

    You can remove Germany and France off that list now. The reason Ukraine won’t be invited, is so they can’t witness the Putin lovers whining about Ukraine joining NATO. Not forgetting the other anti Ukrainian, Orban.
