Joe Biden: Ukraine Can Only Join NATO After Russo-Ukrainian Conflict Concludes
Prior to the annual North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit that was held in Vilnius, Lithuania, United States President Joe Biden declared during a CNN interview that the US would only support NATO membership for Ukraine once the Russo-Ukrainian conflict wraps up.
However, Biden did announce that the US would continue dumping military aid into Ukraine for the foreseeable future. Of note, the Biden regime gave the greenlight to the deployment of cluster bombs.
“I don’t think there is unanimity in NATO about whether or not to bring Ukraine into the NATO family now, at this moment, in the middle of a war,” Biden declared.
“For example, if you did that, then, you know – and I mean what I say – we’re determined to commit every inch of territory that is NATO territory. It’s a commitment that we’ve all made no matter what. If the war is going on, then we’re all in war. We’re at war with Russia, if that were the case,” Biden continued.
However, Biden still entertained the option of future membership for Ukraine: “I think we have to lay out a rational path for Ukraine to be able to qualify to be able to get into NATO,” Biden said.
“But I think it’s premature to say, to call for a vote, you know, in now, because there’s other qualifications that need to be met, including democratization and some of those issues,” the 46th US president noted.
At this summit, Ukrainian President Volodomyr Zelensky was also present. Zelensky was particularly infuriated about NATO’s hesitance about bringing it in as a full-fledged member of NATO and Western countries’ perceived hesitance with sending military aid rapidly.
Another major development that took place prior to this summit was Turkey’s long-anticipated support for Sweden’s accession into NATO, thereby making it the 32nd member of the Western military alliance.
All things considered, it appears that Ukraine will continue serving as a sacrificial lamb for the West in its crusade to bleed Russia dry in a geopolitical quagmire. Talk about a preventable geopolitical tragedy….
