Zelensky said he was glad that they had a very powerful meeting on the high level in the U.S. he said that Kyiv had been looking forward very much to this meeting. In fact, Ukraine was on the priority list of the countries President Biden was to meet with, Zelensky said.

"It means that Ukraine is a priority for the U.S., and we are thankful for that. That's a big signal. But behind this signal we are also expecting actions," Zelensky said.
