Participation of MFA of Ukraine at the Ukraine-NATO Commission

On April 3-4, for the first time since 2017, the representative will participate in the meeting in Brussels

An international meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission is being held in Brussels today and tomorrow. The minister of foreign affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba arrived at the NATO headquarters to discuss at a high level the preparations for the NATO summit in Vilnius in July.

According to the official website of the Ministry of foreign affairs of Ukraine, among the issues that Kuleba plans to discuss with Jens Stoltenberg and Josep Borrell are new supplies of weapons and defence equipment to Ukraine, strengthening of sanctions against Russian aggression, the creation of a special tribunal to prosecute those responsible for the war against Ukraine etc.

Separately, the schedule includes meetings with the foreign ministries of other NATO and EU countries.

This will be Ukraine's first participation in the Ukraine-NATO Commission, as Hungary blocked Ukraine's participation all these years, demanding a change in the state's policy towards the Hungarian minorities living on the territory of Ukraine. Hungarians in Ukraine live in the Zakarpattia region and in reality, do not have any pressure from Ukraine.
