International Business News – British Prime Minister Johnson said that it was never possible for Ukraine to join NATO in the near future.
Johnson told a news conference in Madrid:
“It has never been possible for Ukraine to join NATO in the near future.”
In December 2014, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine amended two laws to renounce Ukraine’s non-aligned status. In February 2019, the Ukrainian parliament passed constitutional amendments that established the country’s guidelines for joining the European Union and NATO. Ukraine has become the sixth country to receive a NATO opportunity to enhance its partner status. Officials in Washington have repeatedly said that the possibility of Ukraine joining NATO is not being considered at this stage. At the same time, the US side stressed that NATO will never give up the “open door” policy, and does not rule out the possibility that Kyiv will try to join the organization in the future.
