Ukraine hopes that the NATO summit in Chicago in May 2012 will serve as an impetus to deepening cooperation between Kyiv and the alliance, the director of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry's information policy department, Oleh Voloshyn, has said. "We very much hope that next year's NATO summit in Chicago will be an impetus to the deepening of cooperation between Ukraine and the alliance," he said at a press briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday.

Speaking about Ukraine's relations with NATO, he said that the sides intensified their dialog this year.

"Of course, we will continue to see NATO as our strategic partner in the sphere of security, reform of the armed forces, and in the sphere of tackling the consequences of emergency situations," Voloshyn said.
