Nord Stream 2 was one of most important topics during Zelensky-Biden call – President's Office

One of the most important topics in a phone call between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and U.S. President Joe Biden on June 7 was the situation with the launch of the Russian Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, according to Mykhailo Podoliak, an advisor to the head of the President's Office.

"Certainly, one of the most important topics in today's conversation between Presidents Zelensky and Biden was the construction of Nord Stream 2. President Zelensky stressed that this is not an economic project, but an obvious threat to security. President Biden, in turn, reaffirmed security guarantees for Ukraine in the broadest sense of the word," Podoliak said in a comment to Ukrinform.

In general, according to him, the conversation was very meaningful, very specific and lasted longer than planned.

"They discussed the whole range of topical issues - the war in Donbas, integration into NATO, Ukraine's reform, the policy of de-oligarchization in Ukraine. The key thing is that President Biden invited President Zelensky to visit Washington in July. Therefore, contacts between the presidents will continue in the format of a personal meeting," Podoliak said.

On June 7, Zelensky and Biden had a phone call during which the U.S. leader invited his Ukrainian counterpart to visit the White House this summer.
