ROME, June 30. /TASS/. Ukraine’s accession to NATO is not the issue of the day yet, because it will take 6-7 years to meet all the mandatory requirements, its president, Petro Poroshenko, said in an interview published by the daily Corriere della Sera.

"We have been working on a fundamental reform of the country in economic, social and administrative terms. It will take at least 6-7 years of hard work (to meet NATO membership criteria). When we are ready, a referendum will be declared to ask the people of Ukraine whether we should join the North Atlantic Alliance," Poroshenko said, adding that in his opinion "there is no other system in the world but NATO that is capable of ensuring security."
