Brok thinks debate on Ukraine’s accession to NATO is counterproductive

Chairman of the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee Elmar Brok has said that the question of accession of Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia to NATO is now not on the agenda.
This is stated in a statement by the German politician, a Ukrinform correspondent in Brussels reported.
“Now this is not the time to discuss the membership of NATO of our eastern neighbors – Ukraine, Moldova and Georgia,” Brok said.
He believes that such a debate on these states is “counterproductive.”
“In any case, the decision on NATO enlargement is not only a sovereign decision of a country that joins [the alliance], but requires the support of all member countries,” Brok said.
He also criticized the position of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who said that NATO respects Ukraine’s decision to return to the course of Euro-Atlantic integration with the ultimate goal of membership.
“I do not think the remarks by NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg are useful,” the German parliamentarian said.
