Estonia and Ukraine have agreed to coordinate joint actions to guarantee the security of our country on the path to NATO membership.
This was announced on his Facebook page by Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Ihor Zhovkva.
President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas signed a joint declaration stipulating their readiness to cooperate to bring Ukraine closer to NATO membership, in particular in the context of the NATO Summit in Vilnius in July, as well as a commitment to coordinate joint actions to guarantee Ukraine's security even before our membership.
"What is symbolic is the anniversary Joint Declaration on Supporting Ukraine in NATO!" Zhovkva said.
According to him, Estonia has completed the top ten NATO countries (Czech Republic, Belgium, Montenegro, Lithuania, Poland, Italy, Latvia, Iceland, and Slovenia) that have already formalized their support for Ukraine's membership in NATO in such declarations.
"The ultimate goal is clear and understandable - Ukraine's full membership as soon as possible. In the meantime, we are already working on creating a mechanism for effective security guarantees, which we must receive from NATO member states even before joining NATO," Zhovkva said.-
