Stoltenberg explained why Ukraine was not invited to the NATO summit
Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance Jens Stoltenberg explained why the representatives of Ukraine and Georgia were not invited to the NATO summit .
According to him, the format of this event does not provide for the participation of partner countries.
“It will only be for allies, as this is a fairly short one-day summit. Next time we may have more time and hold high-level meetings with partners. But I don’t want to speculate when such meetings will take place, ” Evropeyskaya Pravda quotes Stoltenberg .
The NATO summit will take place in Brussels on June 14.
The decision to hold it without representatives of Ukraine at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was criticized .
“To be honest, we absolutely do not understand how a closed NATO summit can be held against the background of Russia’s aggressive actions against Ukraine in the Black Sea region and against the members of the Alliance. I mean the latest investigations in the Czech Republic . We cannot understand this. How can you not invite Ukraine, how can you not find a format for Ukraine’s participation in the summit this year, “said Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
