KIEV, March 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry considers statements on the country’s withdrawal from the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) speculations.
“I don’t comment on speculations. I don’t know about any consultations with the Foreign Ministry,” Ukrainian Deputy Foreign Minister Daniil Lubkivsky said on Friday.
At the same time, the diplomat said, “Ukraine is committed to its international obligations.”
In the meantime, a draft law on denunciation of the NPT has been registered in the Verkhovna Rada. The draft law has been submitted by deputies from Batkivshchyna Party and UDAR (Ukrainian Democratic Alliance for Reform). Earlier, radical deputy Oleg Lyashko demanded the nuclear status be returned to Ukraine.
