NATO plans to establish Spearhead Force by 2016. This was announced on Monday by NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg.

"At the Wales Summit, we agreed on a Readiness Action Plan  to deal with challenges from both east and south. We are committed to implementing the plan on time and in full. We are also developing a Spearhead Force, able to respond within days. We are working to stand up this new force in 2016, "- the head of the Alliance said.

On 1, December Stoltenberg announced that NATO will consider Ukraine's bid to join the Alliance and decide whether the country fits all the criteria.

In early October, Pavlo Klimkin, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, after meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, said in Brussels that the implementation of projects under four NATO trust funds, established to assist Ukraine, will start later this year or in the beginning of the next year.
