Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who is currently on a visit to France, has begun talks with his American counterpart Joe Biden, according to CNN reporter Natasha Bertrand.

US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Secretary of State Antony Blinken also attend the talks.

“Biden announced a new $225M aid package to Ukraine, which Zelensky thanked him for,” the reporter said on X.

White House correspondent Seung Min Kim said that during the meeting, Biden apologized for the months-long delay in approving weapons for Ukraine, adding that the United States is "still in."
