Ukraine is on the brink of signing a crucial bilateral security agreement with Luxembourg.

This development was shared by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy via Twitter after a discussion with Luxembourg's Prime Minister Luc Frieden.

Funding Defense and Attending Global Peace Summit

During their conversation, Zelenskyy highlighted Luxembourg's consideration to fund defense support for Ukraine, a gesture that strengthens the military and strategic bond between the two nations.

"We are preparing to formalize it in our bilateral security agreement," Zelenskyy stated, pointing towards a more structured and formal alliance.

The discussion also covered expectations from the upcoming Global Peace Summit in Switzerland.

Both leaders are keen on seeing the implementation of the Peace Formula, a strategy proposed by Ukraine aimed at fostering global stability.

President Zelenskyy expressed gratitude towards Prime Minister Frieden for his commitment to attend the summit and work collaboratively against the spread of misinformation under Russian influence.

Expanding Ukraine's Network of Security Agreements

This potential agreement with Luxembourg adds to a growing list of similar pacts Ukraine has been forging.

So far, Ukraine has sealed bilateral security agreements with nine countries, including a recent one with Latvia. Plans are also underway for an agreement with Norway, as part of a broader strategy to enhance Ukraine's international security framework.

Earlier in May, Zelenskyy announced the preparation of security agreements with seven countries, notably including the United States.

Additionally, a pact between Ukraine and Spain is reportedly on the cusp of being finalized, according to Spanish newspaper El Pais.
