Jun 18, 2024

This was stated by John Kirby, Strategic Communications Coordinator for the US National Security Council, RBC-Ukraine reports, citing a press conference on June 17.


He called the peace summit in Ukraine held over the weekend, which was attended by Vice President Kamala Harris and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, a success.

According to him, delegations from more than 100 countries and organizations came together to discuss the importance of achieving a just and sustainable peace in Ukraine based on the core principles of sovereignty and territorial integrity as enshrined in the UN's founding principles.

Kirby recalled President Joe Biden's statement that a lasting peace in Ukraine must be secured by its own ability to defend itself now and deter aggression in the future.

He also assured that the United States will continue to provide Ukraine with military assistance and support for the Ukrainian people, including a new funding package to rebuild Ukraine's energy infrastructure.

"The United States will provide additional humanitarian assistance to people in Ukraine affected by the aggression, as well as those who have become refugees and have been forced to flee abroad," Kirby said.
