Volodymyr Zelenskyy emphasized the need for timely supply of necessary weapons and ammunition from partners to continue the de-occupation of Ukrainian territories.

He expressed gratitude to the American side for its leadership within the Ukraine Defense Contact Group in the Ramstein format, which has brought together more than 50 states.

The parties also discussed further intensification of military-technical and defense-industrial cooperation between Ukraine and the United States, as well as the establishment of hubs for the repair of Western-type weaponry and artillery systems.

The Head of State noted that Ukraine is interested in cooperation with international partners in building up its own capacities for the production of weapons and related products.

The President also invited the American side to participate in the International Defense Industries Forum to be held in Kyiv this fall.
