Ukraine was invited to participate in the North American Treaty Organization (NATO) summit that will be held in Warsaw in July. President Petro Poroshenko will lead the Ukrainian delegation that has already developed a range of activities within the framework of the summit, said Paul Nuss of Glavnoe, in an interview with V ChasPik.
"Ukraine is invited to take part in the Warsaw summit of NATO as a strategic partner and an observer,” the analyst said.
President Poroshenko is expected to provide participants with a draft of a comprehensive reform of Ukraine's defense sector through the year 2020, which assumes a significant expansion of cooperation with the Alliance.
Some experts have already dubbed the upcoming NATO summit "revolutionary", suggesting that unexpected decisions might be made, perhaps on the expansion of the Alliance.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk is confident that Ukraine will become a NATO member state.
