DW: Ukraine-NATO relations switch to ‘long-time partnership’, - U.S. Department of State
Speaker Joshua Baker commented on results of NATO Summit in Warsaw
The relations between Ukraine and NATO switched from ‘response to the crisis’ to a higher level, which is a long-time partnership. Joshua Baker, spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State, said this at a briefing, commenting on the most recent NATO Summit in Warsaw (DW).
The goal of the new relations between Ukraine and the Alliance is to create a new powerful Ukrainian army, which meets NATO standards and requirements. According to Baker, strengthening NATO’s eastern flank does not lead to a new ‘iron curtain’ in Europe.
‘NATO does not seek confrontation with any state or union of states. NATO is a defensive formation. The Alliance also has to protect stability of its borders’, the spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State said.
