The final program of the NATO Summit to be held in Warsaw, Poland on 8-9 July became known. As the Polskie Radio reports, Ukraine is the only country that will have a separate event at the Summit, during which the heads of the Alliance states’ government will meet.

A joint political declaration will take place as a part of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.

The Summit will begin with the heads of 28 NATO countries and invited guests on Friday, July 8, at 15:30 p.m. and will end on Saturday at 18:00 p.m.

More than 2100 delegates and 2000 journalists from around the world will attend the event.

On Friday morning, before the Summit, the security experts will meet at the National Stadium. President of Poland Andrzej Duda and NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg will open the meeting.

At noon, NATO leaders will gather in the stadium to sign a declaration on cooperation between the European Union and NATO at around 12:45 p.m.

In the evening all the participants of the Summit will be able to watch the flight of military aircraft, after which the heads of the delegations will go to dinner at the Royal Castle. Defense and Foreign Ministers of NATO states will also hold a separate meeting there.
