Ukraine, Italy start talks on security guarantees

Ukraine and Italy have launched consultations on providing security guarantees for Kiev, the Ukrainian presidential press service said Tuesday.

A bilateral agreement on the security commitments to Ukraine by Italy will be based on the Joint Declaration of Support for Ukraine adopted by the Group of Seven (G7) in July, it said.

The provision of the commitments will be an important step towards Ukraine’s membership in the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), said Ihor Zhovkva, the deputy head of the Ukrainian presidential office. ■
