“This autumn, Secretary of State [Antony] Blinken and I will hold a meeting of the updated Strategic Partnership Commission, and most importantly, we will adopt the new Charter for Strategic Partnership between Ukraine and the United States,” [Foreign Minister Dmytro] Kuleba said on Facebook on Thursday.
He said the joint statement of Ukraine and the United States on the results of the visit of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to the United States is an unprecedented document. “I am extremely pleased with it [with the statement]. To be honest, he exceeded my expectations. I am grateful to the American partners for hearing Ukraine on most of the issues, and we have a very substantive document that summarizes the strategic partnership between Ukraine and the United States to a new level,” Kuleba said.
The United States and Ukraine are reinvigorating the Strategic Partnership Commission (SPC), reoriented and resourced to meet 21st century challenges.
“To memorialize the elevated status of our partnership, the U.S. Secretary of State and the Ukrainian Foreign Minister intend to approve a new Charter at the SPC’s meeting in Washington this fall,” the statement said.
