Ukraine and Luxembourg Launch Security Agreement Negotiations

Negotiations have commenced between Ukraine and Luxembourg to forge a bilateral security cooperation agreement, as confirmed by the Ukrainian presidential press service

The discussions are spearheaded by Andriy Yermak, head of the Ukrainian President's Office, with Ihor Zhovkva, deputy head of the office, leading the current round of talks.

Zhovkva expressed gratitude towards Luxembourg for its consistent support and leadership roles, particularly in co-chairing the IT coalition, providing military aid, and backing Ukraine’s EU and NATO membership aspirations. "I am confident that all these elements will be encapsulated in our security agreement," stated Zhovkva.

During the negotiation session, the teams meticulously reviewed the draft agreement's text, deliberated on specific provisions, and mapped out subsequent actions. Significant progress was reported following this initial meeting, paving the way towards the anticipated signing of the agreement.

This negotiation follows a recent telephone conversation between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi and Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Luc Frieden, where they agreed to initiate discussions on this crucial document.
