U.S. President Joe Biden welcomed President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy to the Oval Office, reports the Voice of America.
Joe Biden repeated the thesis he expressed during the UN General Assembly - no nation can feel truly secure in the world as long as Russia is trying to seize Ukraine.
"That's why we've brought together a coalition of more than 50 countries to help Ukraine," Biden said.
The US President reaffirmed the long-term commitment to Ukraine's security that the US has made with the G7 and other partners, and added that the US, like Ukraine, wants a "just peace."
For his part, Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he had come to strengthen the coalition to defend Ukrainian children, families, homes, freedom and democracy in the world.
Zelenskyy recalled that he began his day in the US Congress "to thank its members and the people of America for their great, great support."
During the conversation, the President of Ukraine placed special emphasis on air defence.
On 21 September, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy met with Pentagon Secretary Lloyd Austin in the United States. The parties discussed the supply of artillery systems and long-range weapons, and the president also emphasised the importance of strengthening Ukraine's air defence.
