Kuleba reveals agenda of Zelensky’s upcoming talks with Biden

During the visit of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to the United States, scheduled for August 30, three blocks of issues will be discussed: political, economic, and security.

That’s according to Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba who spoke with Ukraine 24 TV on Sunday, August 8, Ukrinform reports.

According to the diplomat, the parties will discuss strategic partnership in the political bloc.

"We have had a strategic partnership with the United States since 2008. Of course, everything has changed throughout this time, and this strategic partnership needs to be brought to a new level. Therefore, this is our first task," the minister said.

He added that the second block of issues will involve security.

"We all understand that this is about repelling Russian aggressor, also the issue of Donbas, the issue of Crimea, where and how we will be moving. We will discuss some very specific ideas, which I can’t share yet. We’ve had a substantive conversation on this issue," Kuleba said.

"We can build a very effective partnership with American businesses and American financial institutions. We are preparing ahead of the visit some specific projects with names, numbers, and deadlines, which will be submitted to the American side," Kuleba added.
