Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said after talks with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky that Ukraine deserves NATO membership. The Ukrainian leader toured NATO countries to drum up support ahead of the summit, where members are expected to confirm that Ukraine will eventually join.
Erdogan said that without doubt, Ukraine deserves to join NATO, to which Zelensky replied that he was glad to hear that Turkey supports Ukraine’s bid to join.
Zelensky previously said he wanted a clear signal that Ukraine would remain in the coalition. Not that the door is open for us, which is not enough, but that Ukraine will be in it.
Joe Biden also reflected in the US decision to provide Ukraine with cluster munitions for the first time. He said it was a difficult decision, but he eventually agreed to send the controversial weapon because Kyiv needed ammunition to retaliate against Russia.
The White House announced that the President has approved the transfer of cluster munitions to Ukraine. It was a very difficult decision on my part. By the way, I have discussed this with my colleagues. Joe Biden said that the Ukrainians are running out of ammunition.
