NATO said Wednesday it will continue to help Ukraine, which has close ties with the military alliance, to push ahead with democratic reforms.
"Ukraine is a close and long-standing partner to NATO. And NATO is a sincere friend of Ukraine," alliance head Anders Fogh Rasmussen said.
"We stand ready to continue assisting Ukraine in its democratic reforms," he said as he went into a regular NATO defence ministers meeting.
Rasmussen said recent developments in Ukraine, once a communist Moscow satellite, will be discussed at the two-day meeting at NATO HQ in Brussels.
