At NATO Summit in Bucharest – DPM Nemyrya
Today, answering the journalists’ questions on “Open House” Day of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, Vice Prime Minister for European and International Integration Hryhoriy Nemyrya stated that “Ukraine hopes for a positive decision on joining of our state to the Membership Action Plan during the NATO Summit in Bucharest on 2-4 April”.
According to the government’s press-office, the Vice Premier stressed that Government had done everything required for this step, including the approval of the Ukraine-NATO 2008 Target Action Plan.
Hryhoriy Nemyrya also stressed that “joining MAP does not mean NATO membership”.
“It is fundamentally important that before joining NATO a national referendum should be held. Today a qualitative, open public discussion in the society is on the agenda,” the Vice Prime Minister disclosed.
