The United Kingdom continues to support NATO's Open Door policy under which all European democracies are entitled to pursue NATO membership. The decision over whether to seek NATO membership is a matter for the people and government of Ukraine. Last month the Minister for Europe and the Americas met with Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko and Vice Prime Minister for European Integration Dmytro Kuleba, and discussed Ukraine's long-term aspiration to membership of NATO. We continue to support Ukraine's path to Euro-Atlantic integration.
