Ukraine would like the State of Israel to be one of the guarantors of a major international treaty that would provide clear security guarantees for our country after the end of the war with Russia. Ukraine also hopes for an effective mediation role of Israel in ending the war and more powerful assistance to our country. This was stated by Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Andriy Yermak during a conversation with the Israeli media.
He stressed that our country has very warm, friendly and special relations with Israel.
Andriy Yermak noted that the Ukrainian authorities welcome the mediating role of the State of Israel in its attempts to stop the war started by the Russian Federation on the territory of our country.
“We are amazed at how deeply Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, are aware of the issue. And we believe that he is really determined to do everything necessary to bring peace to our land and end the war,” said the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine.
At the same time, he stated that there are issues that Ukraine will never compromise on.
“These are compromises related to our independence, territorial integrity and sovereignty. And Prime Minister Bennett knows about it,” Andriy Yermak added.
According to him, there are also hopes that Israel can be one of the guarantors of the future major international agreement on security guarantees for Ukraine.
“Such an agreement provides for a large list of countries – potential guarantors. Therefore, we are holding separate consultations with each of these countries in order to meet together afterwards,” said the Head of the Office of the President.
In addition, Ukraine would like to receive more assistance from the State of Israel in armaments and military technology.
Andriy Yermak noted that the Israeli authorities should also resolve the issue, which was very negatively perceived in Ukraine, when the rules of entry for our citizens were changed and electronic permits were introduced.
