"To move towards the membership in NATO, Ukraine needs to implement a number of very important reforms. Considerable progress has been made in four years, but much work still needs to be done. We are happy to welcome Ukraine’s achievements, including adoption of the national security law. This law is crucial for introduction of democratic and civil control over the Armed Forces and the Security Service. It is now very important to implement this law for the reform to be effective," Alvargonzález said at a briefing in Kyiv on Thursday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
NATO is ready to continue to provide Ukraine with all the necessary assistance through its representation to the country and advisers, he added.
As the NATO's Assistant Secretary General noted, the Euro-Atlantic principles are not limited to purely security issues but also cover the areas of combating corruption, promoting inclusive political process, democratic values and the rule of law.
"Therefore, we urge you to continue to implement this important agenda. In our opinion, it is extremely important for the future of Ukraine," NATO's Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy, Ambassador Alejandro Alvargonzález, stressed.
