The meeting of the Presidents of Ukraine and the United States is not planned to be postponed due to the recent events in Afghanistan. This was stated by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba on the air of the Ukraine 24 TV channel.

“As of now, we have no indicators from Washington about the possibility of postponing the visit. Yesterday in Washington, very active preparations for the visit of the President of Ukraine from the American side continued,” he said.

He also commented on the postponement of the Israeli Prime Minister's visit to Washington, which was caused by the terrorist attacks in Kabul.

"Nobody planned to postpone it. It's just that on the very day when Biden was supposed to meet with the Prime Minister of Israel, a terrorist attack took place, which killed more than 10 American soldiers, so the visit was simply postponed to the next day. This is force majeure, of course. But I emphasize once again, as of now, we have no signals from America about postponing the visit," Kuleba said.

On July 21, it became known that the United States expects the visit of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Washington on August 30.

At the same time, the meeting between US President Joseph Biden and the Ukrainian leader will take place on August 31.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky and US leader Joe Biden will sign a number of defense partnership agreements.

It is reported that during Zelensky's visit to the United States, it is planned to sign three bilateral documents on defense partnership, as well as projects in research, development, testing, evaluation and cooperation in the space sphere.
