Canadian defense minister to visit Ukraine in late September
Canadian Minister of National Defense Harjit Singh Sajjan will visit Ukraine at the end of September, the Ukrainian Defense Ministry said on its official site on Wednesday.
During the visit, the parties are planning to discuss further cooperation and practical aspects of the implementation of a defense cooperation agreement between the Ukrainian and Canadian defense ministries and the Canadian Armed Forces, Ukrainian Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak said during a meeting with Canada's high-level strategic advisor Jill Sinclair.
"The areas of assistance [to Ukraine] that Canada took upon itself have been extremely successful [...] I would particularly like to note the Operation UNIFIER [the Canadian Armed Forces mission to support Ukrainian armed forces in Ukraine] and the materiel aid Ukraine is receiving from Canada," Poltorak said.
Poltorak added that the Ukrainian side hopes that the cooperation with Canada will deepen.
