On the sidelines of the Group of 7 summit in Italy, Ukraine will sign security agreements not only with the United States but also with Japan. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced such plans.

Zelenskyy expects that Ukraine, its defence and economic resilience will be the focus of a major part of the G7 meeting. For Ukraine, the main topics are the development of a fighter jet coalition, accelerated pilot training, accelerated delivery of aircraft, strengthening of air defence and enhanced long-range capabilities.

Ukraine also seeks to approve the format for using Russian assets for the benefit of Ukraine, in particular for the development of the defence industry and joint weapons production.

"Today, I will take part in the Group of Seven meeting and hold a series of bilateral meetings: with the host of the summit, President of the Italian Council of Ministers Giorgia Meloni, Prime Ministers of Canada and the United Kingdom Justin Trudeau and Rishi Sunak, President of the European Council Charles Michel and IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgiyeva. During the meetings with US President Joseph Biden and Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida, we will sign bilateral security agreements. The document with the United States will be unprecedented, as befits leaders of support for Ukraine," the President promised. 

Japan and the United States are the only G7 countries with which Ukraine has not yet signed security agreements.
