Kuleba said Ukraine can join NATO without MAP
Ukraine's getting the NATO Membership Action Plan (MAP) doesn't need to be praised to the rank of a cult, as Kyiv's goal is membership in the Alliance, which we can achieve without this plan.
The Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba expressed this opinion within the Road to Warsaw Security Forum online conference, Ukrinform reports.
"Ukraine's position is simple: if the MAP is something that will further simplify our path to membership, then Ukraine and Georgia should get it. But if the allies decide we can achieve the same result in a certain period without a MAP, then we can discuss it," Kuleba said.
He added we cannot glorify the MAP to the rank of a cult.
Kuleba stressed that Ukraine's path to NATO membership should be clearly defined in terms of direction, tools, and deadline.
"It's very important. Otherwise, we will wander in space, doing something that won't bring us closer to our goal," the Ukrainian minister summed up.
