Details: The talks in Davos were held with the participation of Andrii Yermak, Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, and Iulian Fota, State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania.


The negotiations were initiated on the order of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the framework of the joint G7 declaration on the support for Ukraine. They commemorated the boost of bilateral relations to the strategic partnership level.

Romania has become the ninth country which started bilateral security talks with Ukraine, and once again confirmed its unwavering support for the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine, as well as for its European and Euroatlantic path.

Ihor Zhovkva, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, stated that it is impossible to imagine full-fledged security guarantees in Europe, specifically in the Black Sea region, without Romania.

Mykola Tochytskyi, Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, has thanked Romania and the Romanian people for constant support that Ukraine has felt.   

The sides have discussed main elements of future bilateral security agreement and coordinated the agenda of further talks.

Background: A bilateral security agreement between the UK and Ukraine, which will come into force before Ukraine’s accession to NATO, was signed during the visit of Rishi Sunak, Head of the UK government, to Kyiv on 12 January.

This security agreement has become the first among those Ukraine hopes to sign with its partners.
