Defense agreements with the U.S. will contribute to decision on lethal weapons – Chaly

The agreements with the U.S. on signing of two agreements in the defense sphere will contribute to a political decision of the White House on granting Ukraine lethal weapons.

Ambassador of Ukraine to the United States Valeriy Chaly said this in an interview with Ukrinform.

"As for the agreements, the first one relates to mutual defense purchases, the second agreement - to the conduct of research and development work. Both documents will promote military and technical cooperation and also simplify entry of the American weapon products into the Ukrainian market and, accordingly, the Ukrainian products to the U.S. market," the Ukrainian diplomat noted.

He stressed that these agreements "will help implement the political decision [concerning weapons for Ukraine], which is not yet accepted by the White House." At the same time, according to the results of the meeting, he said that serious changes are now taking place in the approaches of the U.S. administration.

The ambassador also recalled that both houses of the United States Congress supported the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine.
