Ukraine is preparing to sign ten more security guarantee agreements, according to the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy in his evening address.

The president noted that on the sidelines of the G7 summit, he held meetings with several leaders of the G7 countries, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, and President of the Council of Ministers of Italy Giorgia Meloni.

The head of state recalled that he had signed security guarantee agreements with the United States and Japan and announced the signing of a series of new agreements.

"Now we have already signed seven security agreements with all the G7 countries. In total, 17 agreements have been signed, and we are preparing to sign 10 more," Zelenskyy said.

New security guarantee agreements

On Thursday, June 13, Ukraine and the United States signed a bilateral security guarantee agreement. The document aims to strengthen Ukraine's protection against Russian aggressors and is designed for 10 years. The agreement is intended to bring Ukraine closer to full NATO membership.

Zelenskyy also signed a security guarantee agreement with Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida. By the end of this year, Japan will provide Ukraine with $4.5 billion and will support Ukraine throughout the ten-year term of the agreement.
