The Ukrainian part of the Strategic Partnership Commission of Ukraine and the United States has identified three main tasks for their further work. This was announced by the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba during a briefing.
According to Kuleba, while still in the United States, the President instructed him to hold a meeting of the Strategic Partnership Commission and adopt a new charter of strategic partnership between Ukraine and the United States. The corresponding task was given to US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
“While I was still in Washington, I instructed to convene the Ukrainian part of the Strategic Partnership Commission to immediately, without wasting an hour or a day, start working on fulfilling the agreement of the presidents and organizing the commission meeting. Yesterday (on September 8) A meeting of the Ukrainian part of the commission took place. We set three tasks for our colleagues from other ministries and departments that are members of the commission,” he said.
The main tasks for the commission are:
- reform of the commission to make its structure more efficient and effective;
- submission of the Ukrainian’s draft of the joint Charter of Strategic Partnership to the American side;
- preparation of a plan for the transformation of Ukraine, which was presented by President Volodymyr Zelensky in the United States for consideration at a meeting of the commission.
Kuleba noted that the Commission for Strategic Partnership between Ukraine and the United States will not just resume its work, but will be strengthened and changed in such a way as to best meet the challenges facing the two countries, in accordance with the agreements of the leaders.
As it was reported earlier, President's Office has published Ukraine and the United States' joint statement on strategic partnership. The document was the result of a meeting between the leaders of the two countries, Volodymyr Zelensky and Joe Biden, which took place in Washington on September 1.
