Ukraine, Netherlands to sign bilateral agreement on security guarantees

28 October, 2023 Saturday

In Malta, representatives of over 65 states will discuss the 5 points of Zelenskyy's Peace Formula. During the summit, Ukraine and the Netherlands began negotiations on a bilateral agreement on security guarantees

Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak wrote about this on Telegram.

Today, October 28, a meeting of foreign policy and national security advisors is taking place in Malta to discuss President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's Ukrainian Peace Formula.

The summit is attended by more than 65 countries from the West and the Global South.

"Ukraine's diplomatic efforts are yielding results: international support for the Ukrainian Peace Formula is growing. The large number of countries from the Global South involved in the meeting is proof of this. This is indeed a demonstration that the world is interested in justice and Ukraine's victory," said Yermak.

According to him, Russian fakes about the loss of interest in Ukraine have not been realized. More and more countries from all over the world are working on the implementation of the Peace Formula proposed by President Zelenskyy every month.

The meeting in Malta is about specifics.

During the meeting, specific plans for the implementation of the 5 points of the Peace Formula will be presented and discussed:

  • nuclear safety,
  • energy security,
  • food security,
  • humanitarian direction (release of prisoners of war and deportees),
  • restoration of Ukraine's territorial integrity and world order.

These plans were developed by working groups that included representatives of embassies of different countries and experts.

"We are moving towards the Global Peace Summit of state leaders. We are working on a common vision of our Formula with the countries of the world. The triumph of international law is a just peace in which the aggressor is defeated," summarized the head of the President's Office.

Ukraine and the Netherlands to conclude bilateral agreement on security guarantees

On behalf of Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Head of the President's Office Andriy Yermak began consultations with the Netherlands on concluding a bilateral agreement on security guarantees in accordance with the Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine during the third meeting of national security and foreign policy advisers in Malta. This was reported by the Ukrainian president's official website.

"It is symbolic that we started security consultations with the Netherlands during the third meeting of national security advisers on the implementation of the Ukrainian Peace Formula, as one of the elements of the formula is to prevent the escalation of the war and the recurrence of aggression. The Netherlands is a reliable partner of Ukraine in bringing our common victory closer," Andriy Yermak stressed.

Bilateral consultations with the Netherlands concerned cooperation in the military sphere, the issue of economic reconstruction of Ukraine, joint efforts to bring the Russian aggressor to justice, as well as sanctions pressure and the use of confiscated assets. In particular, the parties discussed the establishment of defense production in Ukraine. Special attention was paid to the Netherlands' continued support for Ukraine's integration into the EU and NATO.

Armenia participates for the first time in the summit on the Ukrainian Peace Formula

Security Council Secretary Armen Grigoryan arrived in Malta on October 28 to attend a summit on the Ukrainian Peace Formula, the Armenian service of Radio Liberty reports.

Deputy Head of the President's Office Ihor Zhovkva told Reuters that "after Malta, we will have something to announce".

It is worth noting that Armenia is a member of the pro-Russian military bloc CSTO (Collective Security Treaty Organisation), which includes some post-Soviet countries. And now Armenia, along with neighboring Georgia and Azerbaijan, is one of the largest hubs for supplying goods to Russia bypassing Western sanctions.

  • In August, Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the Peace Formula is the practical implementation of the principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter.
