Deschytsia states new government of Ukraine has no intention to join NATO
Acting Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine Andriy Deschytsia has once again stated that the new Ukrainian government is not intending to lead Ukraine to NATO.
"We are considering all options regarding the strengthening of our security and collective security. But we must stick to the existing legislation of Ukraine," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Saturday.
The official noted that in accordance with the Ukrainian legislation Ukraine is a non-aligned state.
"But the issue whether to change this legislation depends on the Ukrainian parliament. The program of the new Ukrainian government does not contain the intention of becoming a member of NATO," he said.
Deschytsia added that Ukraine supports an intensive dialogue with NATO and is discussing different forms and ways of cooperation.
