The United States Congress is expected to approve a package of aid to Ukraine as it stands as the foremost issue of global security, according to the British Foreign Secretary, David Cameron.

Addressing audiences in Sofia alongside Bulgarian Prime Minister Nikolai Denkov, Cameron emphasized that "nothing is more important" than supporting Ukraine against Russian aggression.

"Britain has brought its support package for next year, the European Union has brought their package for the next year and I urge members of Congress in the United States who’ll be looking at this today to vote for their package," Cameron said.

According to him, this is crucial for American security.

"The whole world is going to be watching what happens in Congress," he added.

Aid to Ukraine

On February 13, the U.S. Senate approved aid to Ukraine, Israel, and Taiwan totaling $95 billion after several months of delay, but the bill still faces tough battles in the House of Representatives. The package includes $60 billion in military aid to Ukraine.

President Joe Biden urged the House of Representatives to urgently approve the aid package, emphasizing that the bill is crucial for U.S. national security.
