The White House’s proposal of holding a visit of President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy to Washington on August 30 is an important step in implementing the agreements reached during the June telephone call between the leaders of Ukraine and the United States.
The agenda of negotiations will include, first and foremost, the security issues, such as countering the continued aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine, deterioration of the situation in the Black Sea region and in the Donbas, de-occupation of Crimea, strengthening energy security of our country and Europe as a whole, military and defense cooperation between Ukraine and the United States. The talks regarding the Nord Stream 2 project as a security threat for Ukraine and the region will be continued.
We are looking forward to reaching concrete agreements on deepening the relations of Strategic Partnership between our countries on all priority tracks of our cooperation, as well as agreeing on an ambitious package of joint projects and initiatives in the fields of security and defense, trade and investments, energy, climate, agriculture, infrastructure, and digital transformation.
The Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine and the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine will visit Washington shortly with the aim of discussing the content of the visit of the President of Ukraine to the United States.
