Quote: "Following intensive talks, NATO allies have reached consensus on removing MAP from Ukraine's path to membership."


Details: The Foreign Minister has welcomed the decision, which he noted would shorten Ukraine's path to NATO.

"It is also the best moment to offer clarity on the invitation to Ukraine to become member," Kuleba added.

Background: Deputy Prime Minister Olha Stefanishyna has added that the entire eastern flank of NATO, as well as a number of Western European countries, are now in favour of inviting Ukraine to join. 


She also believes that NATO can invite Ukraine to join even during the war and complete the process when circumstances allow.
