The Ukrainian party hopes that NATO's new strategic concept, which is supposed to be adopted during NATO's jubilee summit in spring 2009, will preserve a principle of openness of the organization and the possibility for democratic states to join the Alliance, Ukraine's Minister of Defense Yuriy Yekhanurov said this in Krakow (Poland) at the meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission, UKRINFORM.

Yekhanurov stressed that NATO's open-door policy and readiness of the organization for enlargement helps form the common responsibility for building of a security system and its support. He noted that from the point of view of Ukraine, NATO remains the most influential security organization on the Euro-Atlantic space.

“We are meeting today for the first time after the December Foreign Ministerial and have a chance to look at the practical routes that may allow Ukraine to fulfill its Euro-Atlantic aspirations. We fully realize that this task will bring additional responsibility to Ukraine for a greater scope of work to be additionally performed,” the minister underscored.
