Both parties discussed Ukraine's aspirations to join NATO, Ukrinform reports, citing the press service of the Ukrainian parliament.

According to Korniienko, the adoption of a statement supporting Ukraine's accession to NATO is extremely important for Ukraine ahead of the NATO summit in Vilnius.

"Our joint task should be the adoption by the allies at the Vilnius summit of a decision regarding Ukraine - we need a clear algorithm for moving towards the North Atlantic Treaty Organization," he said.
