Apr 18, 2024

Ukraine has begun negotiations on an agreement on security guarantees with the Czech Republic. The document will provide for cooperation in the field of the defense-industrial complex.


This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to the press service of the Office of the President of Ukraine.

The first round of negotiations was conducted by the deputy head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Ihor Zhovkva. The Czech side was presented by the General Director for Security and Multilateral Relations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic, David Konetsky.

Zhovkva noted that the Czech Republic demonstrates leadership in supporting Ukraine and involves other countries in the implementation of bold and important initiatives, including the supply of military ammunition to our country. Prague also supports our country in matters of joining the European Union and NATO.

"The parties witnessed progress in the preparation of the draft of the future agreement on security, exchanged a vision of its meaningful content, in particular regarding the strengthening of cooperation in the field of defense industry," - said the OP's message.

A schedule for further negotiations was also agreed upon so that the presidents of the two countries could sign the agreement in the near future.

Ukraine has already concluded agreements on security guarantees with dozens of countries. Something has changed? Have arms supplies and financial assistance increased? No. Then what's the point?
