Many traditional U.S. allies do not have such contact with Biden administration as Ukraine – Kuleba

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba says many traditionally powerful allies of the United States still do not have as many contacts with U.S. President Joe Biden's administration as Ukraine does.

Kuleba said this during the Pravo na Vladu (Right to Power) talk show on the 1+1 TV channel, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“During this short period of time, President Biden had two conversations with President Zelensky, and the President of Ukraine was invited to pay a visit to Washington. The U.S. Secretary of State made a visit to Ukraine. There are many countries that are traditionally considered powerful allies and friends of the United States, with which there have been no such contacts so far, and there is a very long queue,” the minister said.

He added that the United States is Ukraine's main ally and partner in security and defense matters. "We always have something to talk about… The American side really wants to see not a ceremonial visit, but a visit that will bring concrete results. This fully coincides with our vision and we are already working on its preparation," the minister said, commenting on the discussion of the upcoming meeting between Zelensky and Biden with U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland.

Kuleba also expects that Zelensky's forthcoming visit to the United States "could change a lot in terms of our security relationship."

As Ukrinform reported, on Thursday, June 17, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba and U.S. Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs Victoria Nuland discussed in a phone conversation preparations for President Zelensky's visit to the United States. Kuleba also said that U.S. involvement in a peaceful settlement in eastern Ukraine would be a key topic of Zelensky's meeting with Biden, which was agreed upon by the two presidents during a phone talk on June 7. According to Kuleba, the meeting will take place in late July.
