Zelensky-Biden summit postponed over completion of U.

It was the American side who requested that the summit of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and U.S. President Joe Biden be postponed in connection with completing the evacuation of U.S. citizens from Afghanistan.

Ukraine treats the request with understanding, said the Ukrainian president’s press secretary, Serhiy Nikiforov, who offered a comment to Ukrinform.

“The postponement is due to a request from the United States, as the Taliban's deadline for evacuation from Afghanistan expires on August 31. It is clear that security issues are very critical now, and it is obvious that the American side seeks to focus as much as possible on the evacuation of its citizens,” the spokesman said.

Nikiforov assured that the Ukrainian side accepted such a request with absolute understanding, supporting the American partners.

He also noted that Biden's meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett was postponed several times the day before. He said it was also linked to the situation in Afghanistan, including the Kabul bombings.

"We understand the request of our partners and look forward to meeting with the president of the United States," said the president's spokesman.
