NATO confirmed the right of Ukraine to join the alliance without the implementation of the MAP.

NATO has confirmed that Ukraine can join the alliance without having to complete an action plan for membership in the organization,  NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said.

 

“Ukraine is now closer to NATO than ever before. The Allies confirmed that Ukraine will become a member of NATO and agreed to remove the requirement to (complete) an action plan for membership. This will change Ukraine’s path to membership from a two-step process to a one-step process,” Stoltenberg said at a press conference at the NATO summit in Vilnius.
