U.S. secretary of defense has ‘productive’ call with Ukrainian defense minister

United States Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark T. Esper had a “productive” telephone conversation with Ukrainian Defense Minister Andriy Zahorodniuk.

"I had a productive call with Ukrainian Defense Minister Zahorodnyuk. I am optimistic about his vision for MoD and commitment to defense and anti-corruption reforms. I expressed unwavering U.S. support for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity," Mark Esper wrote on Twitter.

As Ukrinform reported, in July 2019, President Donald Trump’s nominee Mark Esper officially headed the U.S. Department of Defense. In late August, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine appointed Andriy Zahorodniuk to the post of defense minister.
