NEWPORT, September 05, /ITAR-TASS/. NATO wants to enhance interoperability between armed forces of Ukraine and the alliance, according to a declaration issued on Friday after the NATO summit in Wales.
“We have launched additional efforts to support the reform and transformation of the security and defence sectors and promote greater interoperability between Ukraine’s and NATO forces,” the declaration says. “These efforts are designed to enhance Ukraine’s ability to provide for its own security.”
The declaration has it that the alliance highly values “Ukraine’s past and present contributions to all current Allied operations as well as to the NATO Response Force,” and encourages “Ukraine’s implementation of wide-ranging reforms through the Annual National Programme, in the framework of our Distinctive Partnership.”
“We welcome Ukraine’s participation in the Partnership Interoperability Initiative and Ukraine’s interest in the enhanced opportunities within the Initiative, and look forward to its future participation,” the NATO leaders said in the declaration.
