Klympush-Tsintsadze discussed the date of the next meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg during their meeting in the NATO headquarters earlier in the day.
"The commission discussed the issues of cooperation between our country with the alliance in the context of preparations for the NATO-Ukraine Commission meeting of Defense Ministers on June 15," the press service said.
The press service added that Ukraine's participation in the NATO Summit in Warsaw on 9 July and the implementation of a plan of priority actions of the Ukrainian government for 2016 to achieve European and Euro-Atlantic standards were also discussed.
The July 8-9 Warsaw Summit is scheduled to host the second NATO-Ukraine Commission with the participation of heads of states and governments, where Kiev is expected to submit an action plan on reforming the Ukrainian Defense Ministry to comply with NATO standards, the Ukrainian defense minister said on May 21. On May 20, the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine approved the strategic defense bulletin to reform the national armed forces by 2020 in its membership bid.
Ukraine suspended its non-aligned status in December 2014 and confirmed its intention to join NATO in 2020. The alliance's officials have repeatedly stressed that Kiev will have to implement a wide range of reforms before joining the military bloc.
In March, Ukraine and NATO agreed on a set of reforms that the Ukrainian Armed Forces must undergo to comply with the alliance's standards, following a roadmap on defense-technical cooperation signed in December 2015.
