Ukraine must fulfill a number of conditions for joining NATO. About this at the briefing stated White House spokesman Jen Psaki. On Wednesday, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy is holding a meeting with US President Joe Biden in Washington.
“I think it’s important to understand <...>that this is not a decision taken by the United States, ”she said, answering a question about whether Washington can set clear terms for Ukraine’s entry into NATO.
According to her, there are steps that Ukraine must take for this, and Kiev “knows which ones well.” “These are reforms aimed at establishing the rule of law, modernizing the defense sector and increasing economic growth,” Psaki clarified, stressing that meeting these conditions is necessary to “meet NATO standards.”
She also added that the US “supports the countries’ aspirations to join NATO.”
