During a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Paris on June 7, US President Joe Biden apologized for the months-long delay in supplying weapons to Ukraine's army. He also assured that the American people would continue to support Ukrainians.

Details of the meeting were reported by The Associated Press and CNN. During the talks, Biden said that he apologized to the Ukrainian people for the period when military aid was not received.

"I apologize for the weeks of not knowing whether it would be passed in terms of funding because we had trouble passing a bill that we had to pass that had money in it from some of our very conservative members that held it up, but we did," he said.

The American leader added that the people of the United States support Ukraine in the long run.

"You know, you haven't bowed down, you haven't given in at all, you continue to fight in a way that is just amazing, just wonderful – and we are not going to leave you," he said.

As reported by OBOZ.UA, on June 7, Zelenskyy and Biden met on the sidelines of the 80th anniversary of the Normandy landings. During the talks, the US president announced a new arms package for Ukraine worth $225 million.

Zelenskyy also addressed the French parliament. From the rostrum of the National Assembly, he said that Europe was no longer a continent of peace. The audience gave him a standing ovation.

The President of Ukraine also rejected the possibility of territorial concessions to Russia and said that Ukraine would be able to win.
