NATO open to Ukrainian role in missile defense – Rasmussen

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen in Russia.

From RIA Novosti:  Ukraine may also take part in NATO’s missile-defense program, as the invitation to join should not be limited to Russia, Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said in Moscow on Wednesday.

"I think this invitation should be open to our Euro-Atlantic partners, so it is also an invitation to Ukraine if Ukraine so wishes," Rasmussen told a RIA Novosti news conference. "We don’t exclude that possibility."  (photo: Ruslan Krivobok/RIA Novosti)
