President Petro Poroshenko notes that Ukraine and the United States of America demonstrate an effective level of bilateral relations. This is evidenced by the level of support of the United States for our country in defending territorial integrity and sovereignty.
"The decision of the President of the United States to give Ukraine defensive lethal weapons is a bright example," he stated.
Petro Poroshenko expressed confidence that cooperation in this direction will be continued.
"This is just the beginning. Such cooperation will be continued. On Tuesday, the US Senate approved a draft budget of the Pentagon for 2019, which provides $ 250 million for security assistance to Ukraine. And this is the best evidence that there is a very high level of trust between Kyiv and Washington," he said.
He also noted that this level of cooperation was possible due to the foreign policy pragmatism of Ukraine. "This approach has given us an opportunity to build effective relations with the new US administration," the Head of State summed up.
