On 3-4 April, the Ukraine-NATO Commission will meet in Brussels for the first time since 2017, when Hungary began blocking Kyiv’s rapprochement with the North Atlantic Alliance. Ukraine’s Foreign Minister will attend the commission meeting at the level of foreign ministers, where he will conduct negotiations ahead of the NATO Summit in Vilnius in July, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Oleh Nikolenko said.
Particularly, Kuleba will discuss in detail steps to strengthen Ukraine’s defense capability, including new arms supplies and ammunition production, strengthening sanctions pressure on Russia, creating a Special Tribunal on the Crime of Aggression against Ukraine, and providing humanitarian assistance.
Speaking with journalists ahead of the meeting on the 74th anniversary of the Washington Treaty, Kuleba congratulated Finland on becoming the 31st NATO member and said that Ukraine aims to achieve the same goal – to become a full-fledged NATO member.
The minister expressed his conviction that “NATO and Ukraine need each other.”
