The US Secretary of State is traveling to Scandinavian countries to discuss military aid to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken will travel to Sweden, Norway and Finland from May 29 to June 2. He will discuss the possibility of providing new aid to Ukraine. This was reported by the press service of the US State Department.
Blinken will travel to Sweden to co-chair the fourth meeting of the US-EU Trade and Technology Council with Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo and US Trade Representative Catherine Tai. There he called the Russian Federation to answer for the aggression and asked the countries to support Ukraine.
“From May 31 to June 1, the Secretary of State will be in Norway, where he will take part in an informal meeting of NATO foreign ministers to discuss preparations for the July NATO summit in Vilnius,” the message said.
In Norway, Blinken will also discuss further support for Ukraine. In early June, he will visit Finland, where he plans to give a speech in Helsinki.
It can be recalled that Blinken previously said that the US State Department does not recognize Russia as a state sponsor of terrorism for the crimes committed during the invasion of Ukraine.
