Representatives of Ukraine held another round of consultations with Germany on concluding a bilateral agreement on security guarantees, according to the press service of the Office of the President.

The Ukrainian negotiating team was led by Deputy Head of the President's Office, Ihor Zhovkva. It also included Deputy Head of the President's Office Roman Mashovets, and representatives from the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.

The sides exchanged thoughts on the fundamental components of security guarantees for Ukraine and raised issues concerning the legal framework of the future bilateral agreement.

In this regard, the representative of the German Foreign Ministry, Lüttenberg, highlighted Ukraine's success in implementing reforms even under wartime conditions.

"Germany demonstrates leadership in financial and military support for Ukraine, especially in terms of continuing large-scale assistance in 2024. Your country, which is a member of the EU and NATO, is an irreplaceable guarantor of Ukraine's security and future in these organizations," emphasized Zhovkva.


At the beginning of July, the G7 countries approved a declaration pledging security guarantees to Ukraine, joined by over 30 nations. Additionally, a number of countries began negotiations with Ukraine on security guarantees on a bilateral basis. Negotiations with Germany, for instance, commenced on November 17.

Moreover, yesterday, on December 20, the second round of negotiations on security guarantees between Ukraine and Britain took place.
