The US administration believes that Ukraine already possesses all the tools for potential accession to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). About it reported US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at a hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“We support Ukraine’s membership in NATO. She currently has all the tools she needs. [для присоединения к альянсу]”- Blinken said.
According to him, “since the creation of the action plan for obtaining membership [в НАТО] a number of other very important instruments have been developed to help prepare countries for eventual NATO membership, including an annual program that Ukraine benefits from. ”
At the same time, not all NATO members would be ready to vote to provide Kiev with this plan, the Secretary of State noted. “The membership action plan itself should be developed with full consensus of all NATO member countries. I believe that some states [альянса] it is now less supported than others, ”Blinken said.
