KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said on Friday that arms negotiations were ongoing with the United States.
Asked about the prospect of the U.S. selling lethal weapons to Ukraine, Klimkin said: “We are now conducting such negotiations. I cannot talk about individual systems. This is a confidential issue.”
“We are talking about a very serious strengthening of the defence capabilities of both our armed forces and our defence sector as a whole,” he told reporters at a press conference.
