Ukraine will become a member of the European Union and NATO, it is “a certain thing,” said Mircea Geoană, Deputy Secretary General of NATO, on Thursday at the opening of the Aspen – GMF Bucharest Forum, as reported by Agerpres.
He expressed “extreme joy” regarding the European Commission’s approval to start accession negotiations with the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
“Especially for the Republic of Moldova, it is fabulous news,” Geoană added, mentioning support for the goal of Chisinau’s EU accession by 2030.
According to him, in the future, Romania will be geographically in the center of the Euro-Atlantic community.
He added that he does not feel fatigue in terms of the efforts of allied countries to support Ukraine.
According to him, the only problem is that “we do not yet have enough production capacity to help Ukraine in the quantities and at the pace they request.”
The Deputy Secretary General of NATO highlighted that in the current security context, “we do not have the luxury of not being able to look in parallel at an important issue in Ukraine, and we will help Ukraine succeed in this war and become part of the Euro-Atlantic family.”
“It is something I am confident we will do,” he conveyed.
