UK, Canada start working as joint NATO Contact Point Embassy in Ukraine
The Embassies of the United Kingdom and Canada on January 1, 2019, started working as a joint NATO Contact Point Embassy in Ukraine.
This decision was made by the Alliance.
In 2015-2018, the role of the NATO Contact Point Embassy in Ukraine was performed by the Lithuanian Embassy.
As UNIAN reported earlier, British Ambassador to Ukraine Judith Gough in December 2018 said the partnership of Great Britain and Canada in the new role in Ukraine would be effective. "The first time this has been done as a joint endeavour. Much work ahead as we continue to support Ukraine," she said.
According to the ambassador, the UK continues to support NATO's open door policy and supports Ukraine through various trust funds.
