The minister said this at an online briefing on Tuesday, May 18, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.
In particular, Kuleba recalled the statement by U.S. President Joe Biden about his intention to provide other countries with 80 million doses of the vaccine by the end of June. He noted that Ukraine welcomes and supports American leadership in countering global challenges.
“We have worked with the United States on the issue of obtaining more vaccines. Now the conversation is becoming more substantive, and yesterday I instructed our ambassador to Washington to address the White House, which coordinates the program of providing vaccines to other countries of the world, for a substantive discussion of our interaction on this track," the minister said.
He is sure that this will become another element of strengthening bilateral relations between Ukraine and the United States.
Kuleba also noted that on Monday active work was underway on issues related to our relations with the United States.
“All issues that were discussed during the visit of the Secretary of State to Ukraine are moving forward, starting from support for Ukraine in countering Russian aggression and ending with U.S. support for reforms in Ukraine," he emphasized.
As Ukrinform reported, Biden said on Monday that the United States was ready to provide other countries with a total of 80 million COVID-19 vaccine doses by the end of June.
On May 6, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken paid an official visit to Ukraine, during which he met with high-ranking officials and public figures.
