Ukraine: NATO

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence what recent discussions he has held with his Ukranian counterpart on Ukraine's application to join NATO. (291754)

I have had no discussions with my Ukrainian counterpart on NATO membership. Both our predecessors, the right hon. Member for Kilmarnock and Loudoun (Des Browne) and His Excellency Yekhanurov, met twice in 2008. They discussed the continued UK's strong support to Ukraine's Euro-Atlantic aspirations and Ukraine's involvement in International Peace Support Operations, including NATO in Afghanistan.
