Ukraine, Norway begin talks on bilateral security agreements

Ukraine launched negotiations with Norway on bilateral security agreements, Ukraine’s Presidential Office announced on 26 February.

Ukraine has already signed security deals with the UK, Germany, France, Denmark, Italy, and Canada to bolster its defense capabilities and ensure continued Western military support amid Russia’s ongoing invasion.

The Ukrainian delegation was led by Deputy Head of the Presidential Office Ihor Zhovkva, while Special Representative for Ukraine of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway Christian Syse headed the Norwegian delegation.

“Norway is our key partner in Northern Europe, one of the leaders of the coalition of fighter jets that has been supporting Ukraine since the beginning of the full-scale invasion. It is important that today we have started the process of formalizing the security commitments of our countries,” Ihor Zhovkva said.

Ukraine has been seeking security guarantees from Western nations as it fights against Russia’s invasion, and NATO membership is ruled out before the war ends.
