Poland regrets Ukraine shying from Euro-Atlantic integration.

July 28, 2010 (Interfax-Ukraine news agency). Poland regrets Ukraine's decision not to join NATO, Ambassador of Poland to Ukraine Jacek Kluczkowski said on the Fifth TV Channel on Tuesday evening. "Poland regrets that this process is not developing simultaneously: the integration of Ukraine into NATO and the integration of Ukraine into the European Union," the ambassador said.He added that membership of NATO is not an essential requirement for entering the European Union, and for this reason Ukraine should concentrate on signing the European Union Association Agreement and agreement on free-trade zone as soon as possible."Then Ukraine will have European legislation and a transparent European economic policy," he added.
