U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership Commission will meet on Nov 10 – Department of State

The U.S. Department of State has officially announced the date for a meeting of the U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership Commission, which will take place on November 10 and will be chaired by Foreign Ministers Antony Blinken and Dmytro Kuleba.

U.S. Department of State spokesperson Ned Price said this at a press briefing on Thursday, November 4, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

"We are pleased to announce that Secretary Blinken will host Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba next week for the U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership Commission. That will take place next week, on November 10th," Price said.

He recalled that the commission was established in 2008 and has been an "important mechanism" for cooperation between the two countries.

"Thirteen years later, the U.S.-Ukraine bilateral relationship has strengthened and matured, resulting in the need to refresh the Charter [on Strategic Partnership] to address the challenges of the 21st century and to reflect the elevated bilateral partnership we have with Ukraine," Price said.

He noted that the United States and Ukraine intend to continue to advance the bilateral priorities set forth in the September 1 Joint Statement on U.S.-Ukraine Strategic Partnership.

Price also said that Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs Dr. Karen Donfried is currently in Kyiv to meet senior leaders in the Ukrainian government.

"The meetings this week and next are an important opportunity to reaffirm our commitment to – and support for – Ukraine's independence, its sovereignty, and its territorial integrity, including in the face of ongoing Russian aggression," Price said.
