“Membership in the NATO depends on the alliance itself. We feel there is no unity on the issue inside the NATO,” Poroshenko said in an interview with Germany’s Bild daily on Wednesday.
“If I’m elected president, I’d like to hold talks with our neighbours regarding creation of new alliances to ensure security,” he said.
In 2009-2010 Poroshenko, the founder of Roshen Confectionery Corporation, one of the biggest confectionery producers in the world, was Ukraine’s foreign minister in Yulia Tymoshenko-led government.
In February-September 2005 Poroshenko was secretary of the Ukrainian National Security and the Defense Council.
Presidential elections in Ukraine are scheduled for May 25.
