NATO has said that it is still ready to accept Ukraine, NATO's Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs and Security Policy Dirk Brengelmann told the Den newspaper. He said that in April 2008, the Bucharest summit, Romania, declared that Ukraine will become a member of NATO, whenever it wants and when it would correspond the criteria for the accession. Brengelmann said that NATO is interested in further co-operation with Ukraine. Brengelmann also said that NATO respects Ukraine's decision to formalize the joining the alliance. As Ukrainian News earlier reported, President Viktor Yanukovych considers that the level of co-operation between Ukraine and NATO is sufficient. NATO is ready to provide assistance to Ukraine in the provision of internal reforms.
