President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has said that security and economic issues will be discussed at a meeting with President of the United States Joe Biden. Zelensky said this on the VIP with Natalia Moseichuk program.
“We have several sets of issues to discuss. In particular, it is the security bloc. I reaffirm that this is not just the issue of MAP - this is the issue of our bilateral relations, a defense memorandum between our countries. The issue of Nord Stream 2 - I consider it to be the security bloc, I unite this. The issue of Donbas. The issue of Crimea and security on the Black Sea and Azov coasts. The issue of the Ukrainian fleet," Zelensky said.
In addition, according to the President, the economic issues will be also raised.
"For us, the support of the IMF is very important. However, I want to shift [the talk] from politics specifically to the economy and reforms. And there are some structural beacons, and if we agree on them, then we are partners with the IMF," Zelensky said.
Zelensky also added that before his travel to Washington, he would meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin, where he would also discuss all these pressing issues.
Meanwhile, Volodymyr Zelensky is convinced that relations between Ukraine and NATO, including the provision of a Membership Action Plan, are not issues for discussion with Russia.
