Ukraine expects to receive NATO’s Membership Action Plan in near future – Razumkov

Ukraine looks forward to building consensus among the Allies and receiving NATO’s Membership Action Plan in the near future.

Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov said this at a meeting with NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoană at the Alliance’s Headquarters on March 22.

"The receipt of NATO’s Membership Action Plan will be a logical step on this path. We look forward to a consensus among the Allies and the granting of MAP to Ukraine in the near future. For the Verkhovna Rada, strengthening cooperation with NATO is a priority. Unfortunately, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the meeting of the NATO Parliamentary Assembly in Kyiv was postponed. But we are grateful to our partners for agreeing to hold it in May 2022 at the suggestion of Ukraine," Razumkov said.

According to him, reforming Ukraine's military and security sectors in line with NATO standards is a priority for the government. Ukraine has already taken some decisions that bring it closer to Euro-Atlantic integration and continues to move in this direction.

"We appreciate the Alliance's strong position on the annexation of Crimea and aggression in the east of our country, as well as support by NATO member countries for reforms in Ukraine," Razumkov stressed.

As Ukrinform reported, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Dmytro Razumkov is on a working visit to Brussels (the Kingdom of Belgium) and Luxembourg (the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg) on March 22-23.
