Stoltenberg: NATO to consider providing additional assistance to Ukraine.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg promised during a telephone conversation with Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba that the Alliance would consider providing additional support to Ukraine.

"Jens Stoltenberg has announced that the Allies plan to discuss provision of additional support to Ukraine within the Comprehensive Assistance Package," the press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine informs.

As noted, Kuleba was receptive to the partners' decision to reschedule the NATO meeting with participation of Ukraine and Georgia in view of the complex epidemiological situation in Europe and the world.

The Foreign Minister also assured Stoltenberg that the policy of the new Government of Ukraine regarding NATO remained unchanged.

Among the key short-term priorities for bilateral cooperation, Kuleba mentioned the granting of Enhanced Opportunity Partner status to Ukraine as an additional tool for deepening military cooperation and resuming the NATO-Ukraine Commission high-level meetings, as well as updating the NATO's Comprehensive Assistance Package.

In addition, the parties exchanged views on the latest destructive steps of the Russian Federation, in particular, the prohibition of owning land in the territory of temporarily occupied Crimea by non-Russian citizens.

"It was emphasized that such actions are unacceptable and grossly violate the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as international humanitarian law," the statement reads.
