Dzurinda vows support for Ukraine

AT a February 22 NATO summit in Brussels, Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko confirmed his country's intentions to join NATO and the European Union.

Slovak Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said he would like to see this happen.

Dzurinda feared, however, that Ukraine's journey towards NATO membership would take some time.
