This will be the first bilateral summit of the leaders of Great Britain and France after the coronavirus pandemic and the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“Russia’s actions pose the biggest threat to European, and global, security. The Prime Minister and President Macron will hold discussions today on strengthening NATO to protect our people as well as bolstering Ukraine’s self-defence, both now and in the long-term,” informed the British Government.
The leaders are expected to talk about the coordination of arms deliveries to Ukraine and the training of Ukrainian marines.
“The UK has already trained 11,000 troops since last summer, and we recently expanded our training to include Ukrainian pilots. Bolstering these efforts through further joint UK and French training could see thousands more Ukrainians brought to battlefield readiness,” added the Government of Great Britain.
Rishi Sunak and Emmanuel Macron will also discuss how NATO members can help in providing Ukraine with the security guarantees it needs to be protected in the long-term.
