 NATO should remain open to Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova, Poland's president says

NATO should support Ukraine, Georgia and Moldova and pursue an open-door policy regarding these countries.

President of Poland Andrzej Duda said in an interview with Radio Poland news outlet, Censor.NET reports.

Asked whether, in his opinion, the organization should be expanded, Duda said that NATO needs to strengthen cooperation with Sweden and Finland, as these countries are strategically linked to the Alliance.

"In my opinion, the Alliance should pursue a policy of open doors. Not to say that the Alliance is already full and therefore, no state can join it. I am very glad that the NATO Summit in Warsaw (July 8-9) will be attended by the Prime Minister of Montenegro which shall be in the Alliance. This example shows that an open-door policy remains," the president said.

"I also think that NATO needs to support and also leave the door open to Ukraine, Georgia, and Moldova. Of course, this processes can be very far-reaching, from the point of view of time, but closing the doors to NATO would be a very bad signal," Andrzej Duda stressed.
