NATO discussed Ukraine's needs

BRUSSELS, May 25 (KUNA) -- The NATO-Ukraine Commission held a virtual meeting on Thursday with Yuliia Svyrydenko, First Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister of Ukraine.
Participants discussed Ukraine's needs and reconstruction plans, at a critical phase in the war in Ukraine and with the NATO Summit in Vilnius in just over six weeks, said a NATO statement.
NATO Deputy Secretary General Mircea Geoana stressed that today's meeting will help NATO align practical support even more closely with Ukraine's needs.
He emphasised NATO's active role in assisting Ukraine for the transition from Soviet-era equipment and doctrines to NATO standards, and increasing interoperability with NATO, as well as assisting Ukraine in coping with the physical and social consequences of war. (end) nk.hb
