Ukraine concluded a bilateral security agreement with Portugal


In Lisbon, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi and Prime Minister of Portugal Luis Montenegro signed a bilateral agreement on cooperation in the field of security.

The agreement establishes Portugal's commitment to support Ukraine in restoring its territorial integrity within the 1991 borders, including the territorial sea.

Portugal will provide at least €126 million in military support this year.

It also confirms participation in the F-16 coalition, an international coalition of maritime security capabilities, as well as in the large-caliber munitions procurement program, demining efforts, and strengthening maritime security.

Separate blocks of the agreement are devoted to bilateral cooperation in the defense industry, intelligence, the fight against organized crime and propaganda, as well as countering chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear risks.

Ukraine and Portugal will coordinate and strengthen joint efforts to support our country on its path to future NATO membership.

The block on political cooperation talks about supporting the Ukrainian peace formula, bringing the aggressor to justice, strengthening sanctions against the Russian Federation, and working together to create a mechanism for providing compensation for damages, losses or damage caused by Russian aggression.

Portugal also undertakes to continue participating in the International Coalition for the Return of Ukrainian Children and to contribute to the achievement of the goals outlined in the Framework Document of this coalition.

Portugal became the 12th country with which Ukraine concluded a bilateral security agreement to implement the provisions of the G7 Joint Declaration adopted in Vilnius on July 12 last year. Before that, Ukraine signed bilateral agreements with Great Britain, Germany, France, Denmark, Canada, Italy, the Netherlands, Finland, Latvia, Spain and Belgium.
