NATO has said there is no precedent to the behavior of Ukraine, which has been working with the Alliance in the frame of the Annual National Program, and yet at the same time announced that it has no plans to join the alliance. "It is an unprecedented experience for a country, which has been working in the frames of the Annual National Program, not to want to become NATO member," NATO Assistant Secretary General for Defense Policy and Planning Jiri Sedivy said at a meeting with Ukrainian reporters.

At the same time, the NATO representative has said that this issue is not a matter of discussion within the alliance. NATO respects Ukraine's decisions, Sedivy said.
