Ukraine and North Macedonia are working on a bilateral agreement on security assurances, states Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.

For example, Kuleba met with the newly appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs of North Macedonia, Timco Mucunski, and discussed ways to expand bilateral cooperation and advance the country's accession to the EU.

"We discussed ways to expand our bilateral cooperation and advance our countries’ EU accession process. We also focused on the preparation of our bilateral security agreement. I thanked North Macedonia for attending the inaugural Peace Summit. We discussed further joint steps to restore international security and long-term peace in accordance with the UN Charter and the Peace Formula," Kuleba said.

Ukraine has already signed security agreements with 19 countries and the European Union. According to Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal, Ukraine will receive $60 billion in aid annually as a result of these agreements.

Lithuania and Estonia are among the latest countries to sign security agreements with Ukraine. The agreements were signed on the sidelines of the EU summit in Brussels.
