deftly travels to America and Canada to strengthen support for Ukraine

London, 17 January. The British foreign secretary, James Cleverley, is starting a two-day visit to the United States and Canada on Tuesday to deepen bilateral ties and strengthen support for Ukraine, the London government said in a statement.

The conservative politician will meet with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken in Washington and his Canadian counterpart Melanie Jolie in Toronto, before attending other events in both countries.

Tactfully providing Kyiv with “the tools it needs to win the war” against Russia will emphasize to both allies that “now is the time to move forward and swiftly”, according to the ministry note.

The British government has already committed to equal or more military aid to Ukraine in 2023 than last year’s around £2,300 million (about 2,600 million euros), the note recalls.

Among other things, last Saturday Prime Minister Rishi Sunak promised to provide Ukraine with Challenger 2 tanks and new artillery systems.

During meetings with US politicians, Tact will also address the challenge presented by Iran and the UK’s efforts to join the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), the statement said.

Cleverly said, “The UK, US and Canada have always stood by each other when needed, an order protected by rules for nearly 80 years.”

“Today we are united against (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s illegal war, and we will continue to use our strong defense and security ties to ensure that, in the end, the Ukrainian people will win,” it added in the note. Gone.
