The Secretary General of NATO has promised to provide Ukraine with a comprehensive aid package.

The countries of the alliance will approve a new aid package for Ukraine during the NATO summit in Warsaw, the Secretary General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg says in Brussels.

According to him, a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission with the participation of the President Petro Poroshenko will be held on the second day of the summit on July 9.

'I’m looking forward to the opportunity to meet Poroshenko. He will speak to us and inform about the situation in Ukraine. The NATO countries will confirm their strong support for Ukraine and its territorial integrity and sovereignty. We will confirm our commitment to implement the Minsk agreements. We can see regular ceasefire violations and we will urge the parties to keep it in Warsaw,' Stoltenberg noted.

NATO is to increase practical support for Ukraine, Stoltenberg added.

'We arrange a comprehensive aid package combining various directions, including strategic advice and assistance. We will add new projects, in particular, the ones to counter hybrid threats,' he said.

As reported earlier by 1492news.com, Ukraine should give up on its dream to join NATO - Aleksander Kwaśniewski.
