U.S. President Joe Biden fully supports statements by Poland, the United Kingdom and other allies on their readiness to supply Ukraine with tanks, as this strengthens the "terrific solidarity" of the international community in providing security assistance to Ukrainians.

National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said this at a briefing in Washington on Thursday, January 12, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"The President [Biden] fully supports those decisions. And those are sovereign decisions that those nations make about this kind of security assistance they provide," Kirby said.

He added that there is "terrific solidarity" by the international community behind Ukraine in finding ways to support Ukraine. Therefore, Kirby continued, President Biden believes that such statements by individual countries only strengthen this position of the international community.

He recalled that another meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group would be held in Germany next week to determine ways to provide more aid to Ukraine.
