That will be the only bilateral meeting between Alliance and non-member at this high level

The NATO-Ukraine Commission meeting will take place at the level of state leaders, during the NATO summit in Warsaw in July.

Secretary of State in Polish President's Office Krzysztof Szczerski said "it will be the only bilateral meeting held between NATO and a non-member country on the level of heads of states," reports the Polish Radio.

"We have decided to convene a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission in Warsaw as part of the summit. An that will be the second summit where we have the NATO-Ukraine Commission meeting. And I think that will be a very strong expression of our political support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. It will also provide a basis for us discussing how we can provide practical support for Ukraine," said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in late March, at a press conference in the first day of the meeting of NATO foreign ministers. "I think that the NATO-Ukraine Commission meeting will be an important platform for expressing political support and developing our practical support for Ukraine."  

The NATO-Georgia Commission talks will be held at the ministerial level.

Krzysztof Szczerski added that the NATO Summit in Warsaw will decide on the strengthening of NATO eastern flanks, as well as the Alliance cooperation with the European Union and other countries - an "open door policy".

The politician said that Poland continues its efforts aiming to enhance Ukraine's security.
