Ukraine and North Macedonia to Sign Security Agreement

Ukraine and North Macedonia are actively working on a bilateral security agreement, as announced by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba

The announcement was made on the X social network, following Kuleba's meeting with North Macedonia's newly appointed Foreign Minister, Timcho Mutsunski.

The focus of their discussion was on expanding bilateral cooperation and advancing the EU accession process for both countries. Kuleba expressed gratitude for North Macedonia's participation in the inaugural Peace Summit and highlighted the importance of preparing the bilateral security agreement.

"We also focused on the preparation of our bilateral security agreement. I thanked North Macedonia for participating in the inaugural Peace Summit. We discussed further joint steps to restore international security and long-term peace in accordance with the UN Charter and the peace formula," Kuleba stated.

Ukraine has already signed security agreements with 19 countries and the European Union. These agreements are pivotal in ensuring Ukraine receives $60 billion in annual aid, as stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal. Recently, Lithuania and Estonia joined the list of countries that have signed security agreements with Ukraine, with the signing ceremonies taking place during the EU summit in Brussels.

The ongoing efforts to secure these bilateral agreements underscore Ukraine's commitment to strengthening its international alliances and ensuring robust security measures in light of ongoing geopolitical challenges.
