Nevertheless, as she spoke of the declaration adopted in Bucharest in April 2008, the US Secretary of State pointed out that the member countries stated clearly: "Georgia and Ukraine will be members of NATO". Special committees: Ukraine-NATO and Georgia-NATO must serve the tools to prepare these two countries for membership.
