He said this at a meeting with Ukrainian journalists in Brussels on Tuesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
"I'm getting to work. Yesterday I handed over accreditation letters to the NATO secretary general. Earlier, these were formal diplomatic letters, but now it's about clear accents. The letter was discussed with the head of state. In this letter we say that our course is undoubtedly Euro-Atlantic integration. We understand that this is a way of reform, training of the armed forces, the development of a powerful economy and civil society," the ambassador said.
Therefore, he said, Ukraine should get closer to the alliance as much as possible.
"That's the task the head of state has set up for me. Each of our steps should bring us closer to the main goal - to ensure the security of Ukraine, which we see through the entry of the state into the North Atlantic Alliance," Prystaiko said.
