The issue of Ukraine joining NATO will depend on the progress of the reforms, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a press conference in Brussels, according to the website of the Alliance.

“The focus now is on reforms. And I welcome that Ukraine has so clearly stated that their focus now is on reform, and then based on the progress they’re making on reform, then, of course, the issue of membership will be assessed based on the progress Ukraine is making,” Stoltenberg said.
