US supports Ukraine’s accession to NATO when Ukraine meets all requirements – WH

The White House supports Ukraine’s accession to NATO on the condition that Ukraine meets all the requirements of the Alliance, Karine Jean-Pierre, White House Press Secretary, said during a briefing on 5 July.

“Any decision on NATO membership is between the 31 Allies and aspirant country. And so, in this case, when it comes to Ukraine, we have been discussing with our NATO Allies and Ukraine how we can collectively support Ukraine’s aspiration for Euro-Atlantic integration.” Jean-Pierre added.

Jean-Pierre noted that she would not go into the details and get into private conversations. At the same time, she recalled President Biden’s statement that “Ukraine would have to make reforms to meet the same standards as any NATO country before they join [NATO]. President Biden thinks that Ukraine can do that,” she added.
