Kyiv and Warsaw are nearing a bilateral security agreement as part of the G7 Vilnius Declaration, with the signing expected before the NATO summit in July, Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski announced during a press briefing in Prague, as reported by the Polish news outlet PAP on May 31.

Sikorski, who also briefed NATO allies, described the negotiations as "progressing well."

The NATO summit is scheduled to take place in Washington from July 9 to 11.

This development follows Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's signing of a bilateral security agreement with Norway at the third Ukraine-Northern Europe summit in Sweden, also on May 31.

“We already have five signed agreements with the Nordic countries," Zelenskyy stated.

These agreements include pacts with Sweden, Norway, and Iceland, building on earlier agreements with Denmark and Finland. Zelenskyy noted that the total military assistance under these five agreements amounts to EUR 6 billion ($6.5 billion).

Ukraine has previously established 12 bilateral security agreements with nations including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Denmark, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Latvia, Belgium, Spain, and Portugal.
