Despite present difficulties Ukraine will become a NATO member sooner or later, Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski has said, according to PAP news agency.

      Commenting Thursday`s [14 September] remark of Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych that Ukraine would not seek NATO membership now, Kaczynski said that it was not new news for him, as he heard it from Yanukovych himself.

      Kaczynski noted that the "effects from our point of view are obviously not good as we would like to see Ukraine in the alliance as soon as possible" and he expressed the hope that sooner or later Ukraine will become NATO member.

      On Thursday Poland`s prime minister met House of Representatives Speaker Dennis Hastert. After the meeting Kaczynski said that the Polish government would seek to legalize dual citizenship in Poland.
