No country has ‘veto’ on Ukraine’s NATO aspirations, Washington warns as Moscow tells Kiev joining bloc goes ‘beyond red lines’

No country can veto Ukraine's wish to join NATO, America's top security official has said. Lloyd Austin's statement comes after Moscow warned Kiev that joining the bloc would go beyond "red lines" and may prompt "active measures."

Ukraine is free to decide its future and foreign policy, with no foreign entity having a say in its aspiration to join the NATO alliance, the US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin said on Tuesday.

"Ukraine… has a right to decide its own future foreign policy and we expect that they will be able to do that without any outside interference," Austin said at a joint press conference with his Ukrainian counterpart Andrey Taran in Kiev.
