Foreign Ministry sees Ukraine as full member of NATO in 2030

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs views Ukraine as a full-fledged member of NATO in 2030, and believes that a Membership Action Plan (MAP) will provide a strong incentive for Ukraine to mobilize efforts to meet the criteria for membership.

First Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar said this in a video address, commenting on the NATO 2030 Expert Group’s Report: “United for a New Era” launched on December 3.

She noted the involvement of Ukraine in the discussion on strengthening the political dimension of the Alliance within the framework of the NATO 2030 concept. According to Dzheppar, the report confirms the Alliance's commitment to the "open door" policy with the aim of strengthening NATO's Eastern Flank and building up the engagement with Eastern partners, in particular Ukraine and Georgia.

“Ukraine is optimistic. In 2030, we see ourselves as a full-fledged member of the Alliance,” Dzheppar stressed.

According to her, in this context, Membership Action Plan will be a new strong incentive to Ukraine to proceed with reforms and to mobilize efforts to meet the criteria for membership.

As Ukrinform reported earlier, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg hosted a meeting of the North Atlantic Council (NAC) at the level of Ministers of Foreign Affairs on December 1-2. In the context of a pandemic, the meeting was held via secure teleconference.
