“I commend the decision by the NATO summit as regards the enhancement of partnership with Ukraine and our irrefutable prospects of Euro-Atlantic integration. This is the result of many years of our team’s work, a clear recognition of Ukraine’s progress on the path of reforms and movement towards the NATO standards,” President Petro Poroshenko emphasized on his official Facebook page.

"We really appreciate the unbroken unity and solidarity of the Alliance with Ukraine," Petro Poroshenko said.

"We will continue to do our utmost to ensure the implementation of Euro-Atlantic aspirations of the Ukrainian people," he stressed.

The Head of State highly appreciates the commitment of the Alliance to the support of sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine in its internationally recognized borders. "NATO strongly condemns and will never recognize the annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea. Our partners require Russia to withdraw its troops from the territory of our state and stop any political, financial and material support of the illegal armed formations in the Donbas," he added.

The President also commended the allies' readiness to continue powerful, coordinated, transatlantic pressure on the Russian aggressor, including sanctions.

Petro Poroshenko will continue his work with NATO leaders today and tomorrow in Brussels to implement the integration potential of Ukraine and cooperation in the interests of peace, security and stability on the continent.
