According to the official, his country would have trouble buying membership in the Alliance.

Ukraine and Georgia must prepare for NATO membership and wait for the right moment to execute it. This was stated by the Minister of defence of Estonia jüri Luik.

“I told my Georgian and Ukrainian colleagues that we should never give up. The best example is the membership of the Baltic countries. It was considered a miracle, but, nevertheless, it happened,” said the official. According to him, Estonia went that way and used the time of warming relations between the US and Russia and the unity of the world leaders in the terrorist attacks on the USA of 11 September 2001. “We were ready to act at the first opportunity. If these debates took place in a year, they would have poisoned disagreements related to the war in Iraq,” the Minister said.
