KIEV, April 20 (Itar-Tass) — President Viktor Yanukovich on Thursday endorsed a plan of the national program for cooperation between Ukraine and NATO in 2012.
He signed an appropriate decree on “implementing provisions of the law the on foundations of domestic and foreign policies,” the presidential press service said.
The law concerns, among other things, the maintenance of fruitful partnership with the North-Atlantic pact on all the problems presenting mutual interest, and practical actions on the decisions taken by the Ukraine-NATO commission in past few years in Bucharest and Brussels.
Yanukovich has issued an instruction to the government to draft the plan of actions under the annual national program of collaboration with NATO.
The cabinet of ministers is also expected to coordinate the activity of ministries and departments and other central agencies of state power in what concerns implementation of the program.
