It's up to Ukraine whether to join NATO or not, but not the USA, or any other country, US Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor told the roundtable "EuroAtlantic integration of Ukraine Under New Internal Policy", Cabinet press office reported.
According to William Taylor, Ukrainians should choose their path to move forward. "This choice is the one of Ukrainians, but not Americans, Europeans or Russians", he stressed. The US Ambassador to Ukraine confirmed NATO's doors remain open for all new members, as it was stated at a NATO summit in Riga. NATO's membership is possible for Ukraine, in case it seeks it, William Taylor stressed.
The US Ambassador to Ukraine noted countries, which have recently become full-fledged members of NATO have a very useful experience for Ukraine.
In turn, Czech Ambassador to Ukraine Karel Stindl opined the referendum on Ukraine's accession into NATO is a non-sense, as the society is not in charge of Ukraine's security.
