Ukrainian Defense Minister Andriy Zahorodniuk has proposed expanding cooperation with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and moving it into a more practical field, reported Chinese news agency Xinhua.
“My colleagues and I had a number of important meetings during our two days in Brussels,” Zahorodniuk was quoted as saying. “In particular, a short but informative conversation with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. I informed him about the security situation in the east of Ukraine, and the Black and Azov Seas,” he added.
Earlier on Friday, Dmytro Kuleba, Ukrainian deputy prime minister for European and Euro-Atlantic integration, said that the visit to Ukraine tomorrow and on Thursday (October 30-31) by a delegation of the North Atlantic Council, NATO’s principal decision-making body, is a powerful sign of support for Kiev.
In February, the country’s Parliament passed a constitutional amendment making clear its intentions to join NATO and the European Union, Xinhua noted.
