The accession of Ukraine to NATO will take a longer time, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg believes.

“When it comes to Ukraine, that’s an issue which will take a longer time. We support the efforts of Ukraine to move towards membership. We are helping them with implementing the reforms, Canada is part of that, Canada is extremely helpful, together with other NATO allies, we help them. But the message is that it is for Ukraine and the 29 NATO allies to decide on membership for Ukraine. Russia has no right to veto such a process. But of course Ukraine is now focused on the reforms to be able to meet the NATO standards and that is the main focus now,” Stoltenberg said in an interview with The Cronicle Herald.

According to him, Ukraine is now focused on the reforms to be able to meet the NATO standards and that “is the main focus now.”
