NATO Not to Invite Ukraine in Nearest Future

BRUSSELS, Belgium -- NATO is not going to invite Ukraine to join it in the near future, sources at the Brussels headquarters of the Western alliance told Itar-Tass.

A new quality of relations between Ukraine and NATO will be discussed at a regular meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission due to be held in Vilnius on April 21.

However, no invitation of Ukraine to NATO will be made at this meeting.

Ukraine openly states its wish to join Euro-Atlantic structures, but accession to NATO is a long process, decisions on invitation of countries are made only at the top level and nobody is ready for this so far, the sources said.

They said the invitation of Ukraine to NATO is not a matter of the nearest months.

There’s a certain procedure, and only Albania, Macedonia and Croatia are candidates for the admission to NATO, but even they have not been invited to join the alliance so far.

Foreign ministers of 26 NATO countries will exchange at the informal meeting in Vilnius views on the situation in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq and on the beginning of political consultations on reform of the Western alliance.
