Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Oleksandr Danyluk says that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will meet with his U.S. counterpart Donald Trump in the United States, and Ukraine's Foreign Ministry is engaged in setting a date for their meeting.

"Two weeks ago I returned from the United States. There I had a clear goal – we developed a new agenda for security cooperation between the United States and Ukraine. There is serious change in the role of Ukraine. It is time to move away from playing the victim role. We are a strong country and should be a reliable partner for our strategic partners. It was from these positions that we discussed proposals [in Washington, D.C.]," Danyliuk said on Radio NV on August 2.
