The question of Ukraine's accession to NATO is not on the agenda. This was stated at the briefing by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

"President Poroshenko very clearly stated at this meeting that the issue of Ukraine's membership in NATO is not on the agenda. Now the main thing - is how can Ukraine meet NATO standards, carry out reforms, and how can we increase the operational cooperation between Ukrainian and NATO forces", - said Stoltenberg.

According to the Secretary General, the question of Ukraine's accession to NATO will be decided later. Stoltenberg also stressed that each country must decide independently whether it wants to become a member of NATO.
