KIEV, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine can deliver all reforms required for its joining the European Union within five years, parliamentary speaker Olexander Turchynov said in an interview with Baltic News Service, Ukrainian parliament’s press service reported on Monday.

“We are setting the aim to join the European Union within five years,” he said. “Ukraine should become a member of the European Union and of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.”

Ukraine’s parliament, Verkhovna Rada, will ratify the EU association agreement soon, he said. “The Ukrainian people have made their choice - European and North Atlantic integration.”

“Most Ukrainians realise the country should join NATO as it is a means to protect Ukraine from Russia’s aggressive policies.”

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister, Pavlo Klimkin, said in an interview with Deutschlandfunk (DLF) radio station on Sunday: “Ukraine as yet is not going to join NATO. As yet, there is no accord on the issue between politicians and society. Thus, this is not a task for now.
