The heads of diplomacy coordinated steps to counter russian aggression given the announcement of partial mobilization of russians to continue the war against Ukraine.
Following the meeting, the Ministers adopted a joint statement:
"The Foreign Ministers of Ukraine, Poland and the United Kingdom met in New York and agreed:
- to continue unwavering support of Ukraine by Poland and the UK in countering russian aggression until Ukraine wins;
- to develop proposals for long-term support to Ukraine to help it prevent and repel future attacks;
- to develop tripartite cooperation to strengthen the defence capabilities of the three countries and NATO's eastern flank.
