Biden does not want preferential treatment for Ukraine in relation to NATO

According to US President Joe Biden, Ukraine cannot hope to get preferential treatment in its efforts to join NATO. Today, he said, the country must meet all the necessary criteria to join. “So we’re not going to make it easy.”

For some time now, Ukraine has been urging its Western supporters to join the military alliance closely and later. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky had in fact hoped that his country would receive an official invitation to join the military alliance’s summit in Lithuania in July.

The United States and Germany put the brakes on

But NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg recently rejected these efforts, saying in Brussels after a meeting of defense ministers, “We will not discuss an invitation at the Vilnius summit.” Instead, a new NATO-Ukraine Council will be created, which is scheduled to meet for the first time in Vilnius with Selinsky.

The USA and Germany are currently opposed to inviting Ukraine to join. Apart from the possibility of joining, the summit to be held in Lithuania on July 11-12 will discuss more military support in the fight against Russian forces.
