The United States has welcomed Ukraine’s new Law on National Security adopted by the Ukrainian Parliament on June 21 and signed by President Poroshenko on July 5.

This was said in a statement by Spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State Heather Nauert, published on Friday.

"The United States welcomes Ukraine’s new Law on National Security, adopted by the Rada June 21 and signed by President Poroshenko July 5. The law is consistent with Western principles and provides a framework for increasing the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ NATO interoperability," she noted.

The spokesperson of the U.S. Department of State also stressed that "full implementation of the law, including the establishment of a Rada oversight committee for the security sector and a new law on the Security Service of Ukraine, will further deepen Ukraine’s Western integration."

The official also noted that the United States "stands ready to continue supporting Ukraine’s defense and security sector reforms to bolster Ukraine’s ability to defend its territorial integrity."
