NSDC secretary meets with UK delegation to discuss military cooperation

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksandr Danyliuk held a meeting with United Kingdom Ministry of Defense Director for International Security Policy Nick Gurr, the NSDC press service has reported.

During the meeting on Thursday, the parties discussed the topical issues of bilateral relations in the security and defense sector and enhancing military cooperation.

The interlocutors also considered the situation in eastern Ukraine, which has developed as a result of the hybrid war waged by Russia against our country.

In this context, the NSDC secretary stressed the importance of intensifying the "Minsk process" with a focus on humanitarian and human security issues. "Achieving progress in the "Minsk process" is one of the key priorities for the state authorities," he said, expressing hope that the negotiations of the updated Ukrainian delegation to the Trilateral Contact Group would be successful.

The parties also discussed the security situation in the region, taking into account recent developments in some Eastern European countries, in particular, in the Republic of Moldova.

In his turn, the UK MOD Director for International Security Policy reaffirmed the UK's consistent support for the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

He also positively assessed the reforms in the security and defense sector of Ukraine and expressed confidence in the further successful development of partnership between our countries.
