It is also noted that the American side stressed the U.S. commitment to the independence, territorial integrity, and sovereignty of Ukraine, as well as expressed support for the Crimea Platform initiative. The parties stressed their desire to further strengthen cooperation within the framework of U.S. programs to help the war-affected population.
