KIEV, July 15 (Xinhua) -- Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych signed on Thursday a law confirming the country's non-bloc foreign policy.

Non-participation in any military alliance is the key point of the "law on principles of domestic and foreign policy," the presidential press service said.

The basic principles of Ukraine's foreign policy are a non-bloc strategy, the participation in improving and developing Europe's security system, as well as constructive cooperation with NATO and other military and political blocs based on mutual interest, according to the law.

Seeking membership in the European Union, maintaining friendly relations and strategic partnership with Russia, members of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) as well as other countries are also stressed in the law.

The new law was approved in early July by 259 lawmakers in the 450- member parliament.
