Ukraine will continue to develop relations with NATO, but the issue concerning membership in the organization is removed from the agenda.

K. Hryshchenko reminded that an idea of membership of Ukraine in the Alliance is not supported by majority of Ukrainians and destructively influences efficiency of the foreign policy of Ukraine. Taking into account these factors, Ukraine will continue to develop its relations with NATO, but the issue on membership in Alliance removed from the agenda.
