US Chargé d’Affaires in Ukraine William Taylor noted that Washington seeks to help Kyiv update and strengthen the Armed Forces.
The United States believes that Ukraine may apply for NATO membership, and Washington will support this course, said U.S. Chargé d’Affaires in Ukraine William Taylor in an interview for eurointegration.com.ua.
“As for support from our side, my answer is simple. There is a United States policy that I support both the White House and the Department of Defense: the United States believes that Ukraine can apply for NATO membership, and we will be happy to welcome Ukraine’s membership application,” said the head of the embassy.
He also assured that, “while Ukraine is preparing for this step,” the United States seeks to help it update and strengthen the Armed Forces.
“There is nothing better than continuing what you [Ukraine] are doing now. I’m talking about military reform, about joint exercises, about the transition to NATO weapons standards,” Taylor emphasized.
