Among the allies of today there is no consensus on the timing of the entry of Ukraine into the Alliance, but the prospect is there, said the Head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin at the meeting of the inter-parliamentary Council Ukraine-NATO on the first day of the week in Kiev.
"nowadays we often hear the thesis - when and Under what conditions Ukraine could become a NATO member? I must honestly say that today NATO is no clear consensus on the accession of Ukraine. But not as to the prospects (membership - ed.)", - said the Minister.
"To get the consensus we need to go through reforms," explained the foreign Minister.
at the end of December last year Poroshenko has signed a decree on the cancellation of Ukraine's non-aligned status. However, he noticed that Kiev for five or six years will be determined on the issue of joining NATO.
in the capital of Russia has stated many times about the importance of preserving the non-aligned status of Ukraine. The head of the Ministry of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation S. V. Lavrov stated that this status is important to ensure security in the Euro-Atlantic area and is in the fundamental interests of the Ukrainian nation.
Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen have said before, that the entry of Ukraine into the Alliance, it will need to achieve a number of features, implementation of which will leave a large number of time. While NATO does not accept countries that have territorial discussions, and Ukraine claims to the Crimea, which became part of Russia. Experts believe that Ukraine will not be able to qualify for membership in NATO in the next 20 years.
