Zelensky’s aide tells about idea of signing new international treaty ‘for centuries’
The President’s team is working on the idea of signing a multilateral international treaty with the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and China on the guarantees of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.
“We have an idea – this is the first time I’m talking about this – which is raised now in different negotiations. The settlement of the situation [in Donbas] should end with the signing of a large-scale international treaty in which all the largest players would participate: the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, China. It [would become] a guarantee of our sovereignty, territorial integrity for years, better for centuries,” Ukrainian President’s aide Andriy Yermak said in an interview with LB.ua online media outlet.
At the same time, he recalled that Ukraine already had the experience of “non-working documents and guarantees” and emphasized that the headquarters of international organizations should appear in Ukraine as one of the elements of guarantees.
He also emphasized that when concluding an agreement, attention should be paid to provisions that would make it possible to assert [Ukraine’s] rights, including in courts.
